Intermediate Football League.
On Tuesday night 3rd June we made the long trek to Moureabbey to take on Rockchapel in round 8 of the Division 4 intermediate football league.
On a difficult night for football with a heavy rain present for the whole game and short quite a number of regulars we started the game slowly and quickly found ourselves in arrears. Improved play all around the field saw us come right back into the game to trail by only 3 points at the short whistle 1.06 to 1.03.
The goal was scored by Colm O’Sullivan following good play and a pass from young Ian Cahill,2 placed balls from Stewart Crichton and a Ciaran Mullins effort from play completed our first half scoring.
The beginning of the second half were even steven with another Stewart free the reward for our efforts but as the half wore on we began to visibly tire due to the fact that most of the team had played in the hurling championship only 2 nights earlier.Despite never giving up Rockchapel ran out easy winners and a late goal put an unfair look on the scoreboard as we had also missed a number of score able chances.
Final score Rockchapel 2.16, Cloyne 1.04.

Round 2 of the Intermediate football championship has been fixed for Wednesday 18th June v Kildorrery in Castlelyons at 7.30pm.

Junior Hurlers;
In preparation for the upcoming Junior hurling championship we played Midleton in a challenge match on Thursday night last. It was a worthwhile exercise with all 20 players getting a game, our thanks to Midleton for hosting the game.

Inter County;
It has been a great 10 days for Paudie O’Sullivan and who says that he doesn’t deserve them considering the 13 months of disappointment and hard work that has got him back to where he is. Firstly he played a starring role in our first round win over Valley Rovers scoring 4 excellent points and then he scored 2 points for Cork when introduced in the last 10 minutes of their replay win over Waterford. Hopefully the graph will continue in an upward direction for both club and county.

Congratulations to club member and former player Eamonn Dunne who recently announced his engagement and best wishes and a speedy recovery to Dan Cannon who was recently hospitalised, Dan and his family have always been great supporters of the GAA in Cloyne.
