Action on the Field

Well done to our U11’s who got a run out at St Tiernachs Park on Saturday past as Clones played hosted to the opening round of the Liam Stirrat development league. To have a chance to get ready in the dressing rooms and run out from underneath the Gerry Arthurs stand into the bright sunshine was a wonderful experience for the young footballers and indeed the game that followed from a skills, sportsmanship and competitive point of view was more than worthy of the setting. The U15’s completed the group stages of their league campaign with a win over St Tiarnach Sarsfields on Thursday past. Having qualified for the final, the panel will now wait to see who they will play as a number of play offs are required to confirm the cup and shield semi finalists. The league campaign for our Senior side came to an end on Sunday afternoon when they lost out to Eire Og by 2-11 to 1-10 at Paric Mhuire. Played in blistering conditions, both sides did trade scores early on before Tommy Monaghan got his hand to a high ball into the square and palmed to the net to give the visitors a 3 point lead and one which the held till half time. With the aid of the slight breeze in the 2nd half we did manage to string an number of points together and indeed brought the scoreboard down to 1-09 to 10 points, however another highball into the square again caused problems with Christopher Mc Gorman rising highest to flick the ball to the net. Gerry Larmer did have a goal chance at the other end which was well saved by the Eire Og keeper while Aaron Reilly did raise a green flag deep into injury time to reduce the arrears but there was not left on the clock to get another one. The attention now turns to the championship which begins early next month. Thank you to Emerald Isle Water company who sponsored water for the senior team on Sunday past.

Fixtures

It is relatively quiet on the fixtures front as the senior team await the start of the championship while the underage league competitions are nearing completion and we await a number of fixtures to be played before knowing the structure of the next competition. The U7’s and U9’s are continuing with their blitz competitions around the county.
