Did you know the second game the Moyle Rovers played in the minor league in 1928 was against the high school, Clonmel,. The result was a draw, which created a sensation at the time as the High School were regarded as the strongest team in the area. At that time under a rule made by the county board one junior or senior player could play with the minors to give them experience. Jack Dalton of Powerstown was the senior player picked by the Moyle Rovers . All matches in that minor league were played in magners field and all referees were from Clonmel shamrocks club. Some of the names of the referees were Tommy Powell, Tom Carthy, Paddy Walsh and Bob McCormack who was later to become father of Barry McCann of International Rugby fame. Transport at that time was non-existent and while some cycled to matches most people walked in along the railway line from Nugents bridge to Clonmel. Nugents Bridge is situated about 100 yards from the existing Moyle Park. That minor team reached the league final but on an objection to the over age player were expelled from the competition. A junior team was then formed and in their first match defeated Clonmel Shamrocks. Some of the names at that time on the Junior team were Red Stokes(Kilmore), Jack Burke(Kilmore), John Walsh, Paddy Hannor, Paddy Morrissey, Bill & Jim Meehan Billy Lonergan, Paddy,Eddie & James Murphy(Carrigwilliam), Dick Lonergan(Kilmore) and Martin& Paddy Corby(powerstown)
