Minor Result:

Result: Sean MacCumhaills 2-03 Convoy 4-10

The minor’s second game of the season and first home game was played in perfect conditions on Saturday morning. Unfortunately for the home team, neighbours St. Mary’s (Convoy) overpowered Mac Cumhaills and in fairness were well deserving of their win. We went 41 minutes, between 2 halves of football without a score from play and at this level which can be very unforgiving. The pitch was a credit to the ground staff and the use of main dressing rooms was appreciated. All the players showed great effort and enthusiasm.

Best for MacCumhaills were A. Lynch A. Dullaghan, F. Griffin, C. Dunnion and C. Wong who made some fine saves.

MacCumhaills Scorers – C.Dunnion (1-1), E. McDermott (1-0), N. Gavigan (0-1), A. Lynch (0-1)
