U21 Football Championship;

The U 21 footballers were the first team into championship action for 2015,unfortunately it wasn’t a winning start as we went down to a skillful Dungourney side by 4 points.

Despite only having the bare 15 the team quitted themselves quite well and only for the concession of two goals of the soft variety the result might have been different.

Team; B Minihane,J Coady,E Motherway,C Motherway,E Davis,S Beausang,Cian Motherway,D Cahill,C Smith,C Mullins,I Cahill,B O’Shea,N Costine,L Murphy,T Horgan.

Junior Football League.

We made the short journey to Ballinacurra on Sunday morning to take on the locals in round 1 of this year’s football league.

Unusually for a Cloyne football team we started very well and raced in to a 5 points to nil lead before Ballinacurra opened their account with 2 points back to back.A collectors item of a point from Killian Cronin opening our year’s account.

Our next score was a Ciaran Mullins goal when he followed up an Ashley Walsh saved shot to finish to the net,he scored another goal in the next attack following a marvelous Diarmuid O’Sullivan pass to round the keeper to finish.

Ballinacurra finished the half’s scoring with 2 points to leave the half time score 2.05 to 4 points in our favour.

Both sides traded the next 4 points to put us 2.09 to 8 points ahead entering the last 10 minutes.We finished the game very strongly scoring 2.02 without reply the 2 goals coming from corner forward Cian Motherway to run out 4.11 to 8 point winners.

This was a very satisfactory start to our league campaign which see’s us take on Carrignavar in round 2 next Sunday at home.
