College Corinthians 2018 Sponsor
CAB is delighted to continue College Corinthians 2018 for another year. Pictured: Paul O Callaghan Chairman College Corinthians AFC and John Wilkins GM CAB Motor Group, with the new Senior Management Team of Joe Gamble Manager, Austin O Connor, Gary Hackett and Andrew Monaghan in CAB Motors Showrooms Ballintemple this week — feeling happy at CAB Motor Group.
College Corinthians AFC are delighted to announce the appointment of Joe Gamble as Senior Manager for the forthcoming season 2018/19. Joe has been involved in the Club for a number of years initially as Strength and Conditioning Coach and was Coach and Assistant to Manager Tadhg O Connell for the last two years. Joe has brought all his experience from his playing days to Corinthians Park and his coaching style and stimulating training methods have proved very popular with all the players in all grades.
The introduction of the National U13,15,17 and 19 Leagues has proved difficult for all Cork Clubs as Schoolboy players depart to Cork City and Cobh Ramblers. Previous Manager Tadhg O’ Connell did a fantastic job of implementing club policy of bringing underage players through to the Senior Team and the continuity of this policy will mean that players coming to end of the schoolboy careers will want to be part of our College Corinthians Senior team with Joe Gamble at the helm.
Joe has announced that Austin O Connor and Gary Hackett will be joining his team at College Corinthians 2018. Both have been involved with Everton FC for many years and are well known and respected in Cork Football circles as players and Coaches. We welcome them both to Castletreasure.

College Corinthians 2018 AFC was founded by graduates of U.C.C. in 1971. Having played football for U.C.C. AFC during their University years, players wished to maintain their involvement in football and initially a social team was formed. However based on interest shown, it was decided to apply for membership of the Munster Senior League. The application was accepted and in August 1971 College Corinthians played its first competitive match in the Munster Senior League against Wembley and has been a constant member of the league ever since. The team was managed by Tom O’Leary and with the kind permission of U.C.C., home games were played in the grounds of University College Cork at the Farm Sports Grounds, Curraheen Road, Cork.
