Minor Div.1 ChampionshipClann 4-10 Oran 0-9
The Clann Minor team continued their championship campaign last Friday evening with a visit to a well prepared Rockfield pitch to face Oran in the second round of the Minor Championship.
Both teams were not full strength due to injuries. Clann started well and dominated the first half despite the best efforts of their hosts. Clann linked up well as a team in this half and went in at half time leading by 3-6 to 0-4.
Clann’s second half performance didn’t match their first half showing but they still remained in control despite a very spirited display by the Oran lads and in the end Clann ran out winners by 13 points. The lads will know that they will need to become more consistent in the upcoming championship fixtures.

U.14 BoysAfter a week’s break in the fixture schedule, the Div 1 lads headed up to Fuerty on Thursday last to play the recently promoted St Ciaran’s on their home turf. Despite missing a few players away on holidays, and a reorganised configuration, the visitors put in a very strong performance to emerge with a comprehensive victory of 7-22 to the home side’s 3-2. They led from the start, and saw several new entrants to the scoreboard, with different players showing their scoring prowess. They did manage to leak a few goals however, so will be keen to work on that in training. Nevertheless, a fine display of point scoring was the main characteristic of their performance on the night.
The Division 3 team have had a tougher time of late, with defeats to St Aidans and a very strong Michael Glaveys outfit. They’ll be keen to change course when they head North again this week to play Elphin-Ballinameen this coming Thursday.
Meanwhile, despite good results so far, the Division 1 team know they are now in the business end of the championship, as they take on St Brigid’s this Thursday in Johnstown, in what promises to be a cracker of a game.
After that, there is another break (3 weeks) in the fixtures, before both teams resume action again in mid August. Training will continue, and challenge matches are planned as well, so it’s no rest for the wicked!
