Minor League Round 1
Clann na nGael 2-10 (16) Strokestown 1-13 (16)
The Clann Minors were the first team in the club into competitive action for 2017 on Sunday last in the first round of their league. The pitch in Johnstown was in good condition. The game was played in cold and breezy conditions but both teams served up an entertaining hours fare for the small crowd that gathered.
Both halves were keenly contested. Clann had the brighter start and were first on the scoreboard. However Strokestown hit back quickly. The first half continued to be a ding dong affair and at the break Strokestown led by 1 pt on a scoreline of 1-6 to 1-5.
The second half continued in a similar fashion to the first with some very honest endeavour on the part of both sides mixed in with mistakes by players on both sides. In the end, a draw was a fair result. Both sides will have plenty to ponder before the next round in 3 weeks time.
