Our Under 21B footballers went under to a strong Clyda Rovers fifteen in the Championship, preliminary round, at Castletownroche, last Saturday evening.   Were it not for a great penalty save by Tony Watson mid-way through the opening half. the gap at the at the break would have been greater. Despite their best efforts in the second half they lost on the score-line of  0-6 to 0-14.

Team and scorers: Tony Watson, John Hunter, P.J.Keating, Mattie Walsh-O’Grady, Kevin Noonan, Ian Butler 0-1, David Hunter, Dylan Kent, Anthony Crowley, Kieran Hurley, Cathal Harrington 0-3fs, Timmy O’Sullivan, Sean Cunningham, Paddy Pigott, Sean Watson 0-2.  Subs. Richie Hurley for K.Hurley. Pierce Pigott for T.O’Sullivan. Michael Caplice for S.Watson. Declan Mullins for C.Harrington. Darren Caplice for A.Crowley.
