Our seniors were out on Sunday morning last in the first round of the championship. We overcame Melvin Gaels in Drumkeerin on a scoreline of 2-07 to 1-04. Both teams got off to a slow start but Cloone managed to get on the scoreboard first and started to settle. It was a low scoring first half with a scoreline of 0-4 to 0-2 to Cloone. The second half saw a livelier game from both sides with Cloone managing to score two early goals in the space of two minutes which gave us a comfortable lead of 9 points. Melvin Gaels fought back and managed to get a goal in the final ten minutes but the game finished in Cloone’s favour. We now face Ballinaglera next Saturday evening at 6pm in Drumshambo. Thanks to the supporters who travelled and we look forward to seeing you all again next weekend.
