U.16 Div.1 LeagueClann 4-16 0-00 Kilbride
Clann’s U.16 boys continued their unbeaten run in the league with a good win over Kilbride at Johnstown on Sunday last. Conditions were very difficult, with a strong wind blowing down the field and heavy showers at regular intervals. However, both teams fought hard to overcome the conditions and produce a good game of football.
Clann played against the strong wind in the first half but worked hard to keep the ball in the opposition half. Some early chances for points were missed, but two goals from Gary Mulvihill helped the lads to settle and the home team led by 2-5 to 0-0 at the interval.
The wind was even stronger in the second half, making it difficult for the Kilbride lads to work the ball up the field. Clann dominated possession and added to their scoreline with a string of long-range points from Ian Harney and further goals from Conor Ryan and Conor O’Reilly.
Squad: Neil Hannon, Eoghan Connaughton, Alan McManus, Ollie Hynes, Michael Harrington, Thomas Lennon, Luke Gavin, Ian Harney (0-06), Jason Mulvey, Adam Milton (0-01), John Shine (0-04), Conor Ryan (1-01), Oisin O'Flaithearta, Conor O Reilly (1-01), Gary Mulvihill (2-02), Eanna Henry, Rory Colgan, Cian O'Suilleabhain, Cormac Westman, Liam Ward, Kyle Greasley, Shane Gavin (0-01).
