Club History

 History

 

Gaelic football has been played in the Glenavy area since 1899. The first club was "Owen Roes" and records show that it participated in competitions up until about 1916 - 17. The present club, can trace its foundation to its birth in 1942 when locals, including Dan Cardwell, Kevin Cinnamond, Joe Ayre, Bobby Heatley, John and Paddy O'Neill, Felix Mulholland, Donald Jordan, Tom Fleeton, and Joe McGarry enlisted the support of the then local curate Fr. O'Hare. The Club was to be formally known as St Joseph's Glenavy. In 1943 the club played in the South Antrim Junior League sporting blue shirts the clubs first colours!

Ten years later the clubs first success was the winning of the Intermediate League and the South West Junior Championship in 1952/3. The club was flourishing during this period and along with success on the pitch came development of new grounds. Indeed St. Joseph's first ever game at senior level was on the opening of their new pitch on Sunday November 15th 1954. The famous O'Connell's were the opponents that historic day and it was fitting that St Joseph's recorded a fine victory marking there arrival to Senior football in a most emphatic manner. Over the next decade the club participated in Senior competition but did slowly slide to Division 4 by 1960.

The early sixties saw a renaissance in Glenavy football, culminating in the club returning to Div 1 in 1966-67 season and the S.W. Junior Championship annexed. To the fore in the senior team were men like Joe Creaney, James Heatley, Joe Loughan, Brian Mulholland, Brian Falloon, Kieran O'Neill, Mark Kelly, Frank Rogers, Eamonn Kelly, Liam Cormican, Terry Cormican, Aodh Cormican, Owen Ruddy, Kevin McAreavy, Jim McCorry, Sean Devlin and George Grant.

St. Joseph's roller coaster ride through the divisions continued and unfortunately the early seventies were to see a decline in football fortunes and the club in Div 4 of the leagues. However work at underage level began to pay dividends and the senior team were in Div3 by 1978 taking the S.W. Championship and the Irish News Cup that year. The nucleus of a successful team had been found and in 1984 St. Joseph's became Intermediate Champions by beating St. Enda's in the final in Casement Park.

The 1990's were a decade of development, change and success within the club. A new pitch was opened during the summer of 1990 and in 1992 the senior team had unparalleled success. All competitions entered were won by the team- the Intermediate Championship, the Division 2 league title and the S.W. Championship- the O'Cahan Cup.

St. Joseph's have always been an active participant in Scor and had competed at All Ireland level in the Quiz section and Ballad group and at Ulster level in the in the Novelty Section. Junior Scor continues to be well supported in the club and there have been many successes over the years. Development of the grounds continued apace with new clubrooms being opened in 1998 and a new training pitch in 2001.

 Our senior team won the All County division 3 league in 2007. To follow on with promotion to division 1 football in 2008.

 Over the past number of years St.Joseph's underage teams have won a number of South West Trophy's. In 2008 the U-16 footballers won the All County Shield beating Davitt's in Casement Park. 2011 They also won the Breslin Cup in 2011 and the South West league the following year.

Ladies football has also come of age in the club with St. Joseph's contesting the Antrim Championship final on a number of occasions. We also field teams in camogie and hurling at U8, U10, U12, U14 & u16. Our u14 camogie team won the league in 2011. With growing experience it will hopefully only be a matter of time before more silverware adorns the trophy cabinet. Juvenile football continues to grow and the large numbers of young footballers thronging our pitches augurs well for the future of the game in Glenavy. The club fields teams at U-8, U10, U12, U14, U16, U18, U21 Division 2 & 5 all county league. , with modern facilities and growing numbers is well placed to be a force within the county and hopefully will be a source of talent for the county team as it has in the past.

Jim McCorry played at fullback with the Antrim team for 13 years. Jim was named at fullback on the Antrim millennium in 2000.

The club have almost 600members with over 400 underage players.
