Minor Boys Div.1 LeagueClann 0-3 0-13 Oran / St. Croans
On Sunday last Clann minors played the 2nd round of the Roscommon Minor League Div 1. The visitors to Johnstown were Oran / St. Croans. On a very cold and wet day both teams endeavour to provide an hour’s entertainment for the small crowd gathered.
Oran/St. Croans settled quicker and had 3 points on the board before Clann opened their account. The visitors however continued to dominate despite Clann’s best efforts and went in at half-time leading by 0-7 to 0-2.
The second half continued in a similar fashion with Oran/St. Croans finding it easier to pick off points than the home side. Despite this had the home side a little bit more luck the scoreline could have been closer. The visitors deserved their win over the 60 mins. The Clann lads never gave up throughout the game and better results will come because of this.

U.16 Div.4St Brigids 1-07 1-12 Clann
The sides served up an excellent game of football in Kiltoom with Clann getting the upper hand in this Division 4 clash on Friday night. The conditions were dreadful, but that didn’t stop the players from displaying skills and no little effort to overcome the elements. Clann struggled at times to cope with the bigger players from Brigids, but were a little more clinical with their finishing than the hosts. A solid defensive performance restricted our opponents and was the foundation for the victory. Next up is Roscommon Gaels for Div 4 and Kilbride in Div 1, times and dates to be confirmed.
Squad: David Campion, Conor McManus, Rory Colgen, John Shine, Cormac Westman, Ollie Hynes, Tomás O’Neill, Mike Daly, Charlie Kelly, Diarmuid O’Brien, Jack Gavin, Rob Connaughton, Paidi O’Leochain, Kyle Moroney, Oisin O’Flaherty, Eoghan Connaughton, Shane Gavin, Éanna Henry.
U.12 Boys UpdateOur under 12 boys played their first game of the season when we hosted Ballinteer St Johns in Johnstown on Sunday morning. With some help from under 13s, we fielded three teams and all the boys acquitted themselves very well in the difficult conditions. Thanks to all who helped prepare pitches, feed our visitors and clean up afterwards. Special thanks to all the Ballinteer boys for making the trip. We hope all enjoyed their time in Johnstown and afterwards in Hyde Park.
