JUNIOR FOOTBALL LEAGUE , DIVISION I
Lios gCul 0.08 Cloyne 1.09
The "clubtext service" advised us to "make the most of the lovely weather and get to Cloyne on Sunday , but it's also often been said that Spring can bring "all four seasons in one day "
This year , the last day of February brought just that , as Lisgoold and hosts Cloyne battled for the two league points on offer on Sunday afternoon .
A match that started in blindingly sunny weather , with a strong wind prevailing , deteriorated with heavy and blustery showers later , and , with the wind came the cold ! But there was lots to keep us entertained nonetheless . A wonderful display between the sticks by Ciaran Cronin kept us in a game that Cloyne , at times , thoroughly dominated . A never say die attitude , notably from Maurice O'Connell , Mick O'Shea and Charlie McCarthy provided plenty of cheer , whilst Eoin O'Riordan and Kevin O'Shea foraged hard to see us get the better of our opponents in the final quarter . So , as Timmy's charges see the unbeaten record to 2010 fall , the players , and management team , will no doubt , look to the "bouncebackability" factor in the next few weeks .

LOTTO

Once again , we had no winner of the weekly Lotto Jackpot , which now stands at a significant €2,800 , a nice windfall at any time , but especially so at this time of year . The consolation prize winners last week were : Jonathon O Shea, Kieran O Shea, Helena Mulcahy and Mick Beirne . The Lotto Organising Committee would like to thank all who continue to support this vital form of Club Fundraising , and wish all our contributors the best of luck when the balls are pulled from the drum in Smarts on Tuesday next 2nd March .
