Glenvale, the Murphy's Stout AUL Team of the Month for February, have had some loyal members over the years. Trophies have not been exactly easy to come by but the likes of current committee members Johnny Cullinane (Chairman) and David power have been with the Blackpool side since the beginning in 1969.

Founder member David was there and his father Martin (a FAI junior Cup winner with Rockville) was also involved at the time. The Power line continues with Dave's son Shane now a regular marksmen for Glenvale.

Current secretary is Shay Pigeon, treasurer is Liam Crowley, and the other committee members are Power, Gene O'Callaghan, Tony Donovan, Mick Atkins, Paul Lynch, managers Ger Rennie and Pat Kelleher, and team captain Mark Dineen.

Mark received the Team of the Month Award last week in Liam Daly's from Johnny Crowley of Murphy's Stout who congratulated Glenvale on their one hundred percent record for February and wished them all the best in their hunt for league honours in 1A.

While most in football know that Glenvale are a northside outfit, the club itself is very proud of its strong roots in the Blackpool area. They are delighted with their recently commissioned club crest in which the main feature is Blackpool Church, along with the nearby bridge and stream, and very well it looks too on their new gear.

It is some twenty years since they won an AUL trophy, successful in the League 2 championship in 1978. Previously, they won the junior league in 1972 and the Saxone Cup (when it was open to all junior teams) in 1974. They are well in the frame in 1A this season and are hoping it will be their year.

Managers Rennie and Kelleher pick from: R. Bourke, M. Walsh, T. Coughlan, M. Dineen, L. Horgan, J. Flynn, R. Howard, D. Kennefick, K. Donovan, L. Mannix, F. Forde, J. Buckley, P. O'Keeffe, M. Donovan, K. Goulding, N. Coughlan, D. Moon, S. Power, D. O'Sullivan, C. Lee, G. Shortt, H. Cashman and M. Donovan.
