Last season: 8th
Player-coach: Alan Browne (first season)

In: Alan Browne (Weston), Stu Ronan (Three Rock Rovers)
Out: none

The lowdown: Whether Glenanne can convert narrow misses into points will be the main brief for new coach Alan Browne. The volume of one-goal losses last term – six times in the league alone – was a cause of frustration for the Tallaght side in their toughest seasons since the turn of the century.

After a spell with Weston, Browne returns to the club where he ruled the roost in midfield and, after a couple of seasons of losing players, his comeback sees the tide turn with a net gain for 2013/14.

DSC_1592Gary Shaw’s return from Australia at the end of October will lighten the load on Eddie O’Malley – who is hoping for an injury free season – for goals. Stephen Brownlow captains the side that is looking forward to a quartet of young charges developing.

Stu Ronan who is back at Glenanne Park after a year at Three Rock where he impressed in the second team joins Irish U-18 players Neil Byrne, Brian O’Malley and Sam O’Connor. A year more experience as first team players should serve them well for a side in transition.

Formal preseason started and ended with games at UCD’s preseason tournament with wins over Cork C of I and Instonians and a loss against UCD. They go in a little blind against Rathgar having never met them in senior competition but will be ear-marked for early points to push them away from the drop-zone perils that visited them last year.

First three games: Sept 14 – Rathgar (a); Sept 21 – Corinthian (a); Sept 28 – Pembroke (h)
Prediction: 7th
