Clones GFC Club Notes:
Eurotech Heating Solutions Junior Football League Semi-Final
Clones 1- 16 Drumhowan 1 – 12
In an exciting, end-to-end game away to Drumhowan, our senior team came through to reach the Junior League final.
The lads got off to the best possible start with Cameron Dowd scoring a well worked team goal with a great finish over the Drumhowan goalkeeper. It was point for point after this until Drumhowan scored a goal to level the game. However, a strong last 15 minutes of the first half had the lads up 1-10 to 1-05 at half time.
The second half started off with 2 quickfire Darren Freeman frees extending the lead out to 7. This remained the gap until the last 10 minutes when Drumhowan scored 5 unanswered points to set up a nervy finish. But 2 unanswered points from Fintan Kelly and Fabian Beggan extended out the lead to 4 to secure a place in the final versus Killanny. Full time score Clones 1-16 Drumhowan 1-12.

The Un15’s competed in the semi-final of the Brian McLaron cup section against Tyrone and the second game against Donegal in the semi-final of the Shield section. Both games took place in Cloghan. Unfortunately, it was not Monaghan’s Day as they were defeated in both games.
The U16 Squad competed in the semi-final of the Buncrana Cup against Donegal in St. Tiernach’s Park. After a tuff battle, Monaghan were defeated by 3 points.
Congratulations to our Un14 Ladies player, Kirsty McDonald, who made her fame this week with her video entry to RTE’s “Up for the Match”. Kirsty created a video presenting a game in St. Tiarnachs Park. Kirsty also made her debut on Northern Sound last Thursday to speak about her experience entering the competition. Well Done, Kirsty, you will be the next Joanne Cantwell for sure!
