Junior Hurling League;

We welcomed Midleton to Cloyne for our first Division 2 hurling league game of the year on Wednesday night last. The game was played in the Chapel St Field where the surface wasn’t conducive to free flowing hurling. We played against the strong wind in the first half and found ourselves only 2 points down at the break 5 pts to 3.

Making full use of the new 9 sub rule we rang the changes in the second half and one of those subs Brian Walsh put us on the road to victory with 2 fine early second half goals.

Try as they might Midleton couldn’t breach our defence for the all important goal where debutant goalie Mick Mullane and Alan Roberts excelled.

The full time score read Cloyne 2.08 Midleton 10 points, a satisfactory start to the campaign.

Practice Game;

The Intermediate Hurlers travelled to Hospital in Limerick on Saturday last to play the locals in a practice game. The game was a very tight affair for the most part but we managed to pull away near the end for a comfortable victory. Our gratitude to the host club for their hospitality on the day and to all the players that travelled and enjoyed the journey home.


Pitch Opening;

Preparations are in full swing for the upcoming attractive Senior Hurling game Cork v Clare. The new complex “Pairc Cluain Uamha” will be officially opened by the Chairman of the Munster Council Jerry O’Sullivan at 4.30pm approx with the game at 7pm.

Come along and see Davy Fitzgerald and Donal Og take on Kieran Kingston and Diarmuid O’Sullivan in what will probably be both teams last games before their respective championships.

As many club members are asked to make themselves available for stewarding on the day.
