Senior O'Rourke CupThe Matrix Bathroom and Kennedy’s Service Station sponsored Clann Senior team travelled to Frenchpark on Saturday last to face Western Gaels in the O’Rourke Cup. It was a wet evening against a Gaels team who were leading the Div.1 league going into the match.
The game started poorly for Clann with Western Gaels clocking up 1-4 before Clann getting their first score on the cards. Clann started taking their points and got their first goal from Ross Naughton. The sides were well matched and finished the half level at 1-6 each.
The second half started much the same as the first with both teams taking opportunities but Clann were failing to make the most of their chances. Clann got their second goal through Johnny Dunning but were pegged back by a second goal for Western Gaels. The match seemed like it might end a draw game, with the scores level with 5 minutes remaining. However, Clann seemed to take their foot off the pedal and Western Gaels took control of the final 5 minutes, running out an 8 point lead to finish the match. Final score Western Gaels 2-18 Clann 2-10.

Minor Div.1 ChampionshipThe Clann Minor team opened their Championship campaign last Thurs evening in Johnstown against neighbours and old rivals St. Brigids.
Both teams were not full strength but this didn’t stop them providing a good evenings football for the attendance. The first half was an even affair with both teams having their periods of dominance. At half time the score was 0-6 apiece.
The second half continued in a similar fashion but a late goal from the visitors saw them run out winners by a point. The Clann lads will know that this was a game they could have won having played some good football for good periods, however lack of concentration and mistakes proved costly. More displays of good football should stand to them in the remaining four group games in the Championship. Final score Clann 0-13 St. Brigids 1-11.

U.16 Div.1 ChampionshipClann were on the end of a heavy defeat to St Brigids last Monday in Johnstown in the second group game of the u16 Division 1 championship. The result was never in doubt, despite some resistance from the Clann boys. This setback will not derail the squad and management from continuing in the excellent work that has taken place. St Brigids' power, size and pace was not matched by our boys on the night, but lessons can be taken from such games. We have some players returning, which will act as a boost to the squad. Next up is St Dominics and a chance to move forward again.
Squad: Declan McManus, Cian Gavin, Jason Ryan, Joseph Kelly, Daniel Westman, Patrick Gavin, Michael Kelly, Fearghus Lennon, Cian Fallon-McGowan, John Feeney, Mark Naughton, Alan Mulvey, Mark Gannon, Fionnán Henry, Rian Carpenter, Shane Flannery, Jamie Tymon, Jesse Middleton, Patrick Moran, Aaron Oyiki, Sean Reynolds, Micheál McClean, Dean Reynolds, Tom Shine, Damien Kelly, Joseph Duignan, Josh Lennon.
