National League Defeat to Clare: An experimental Leitrim team suffered a heavy loss to Clare in Ballinasloe on Sunday afternoon last. Leitrim never got out of the blocks in the first half as Clare dominated possession and were impeccable in their shooting, aided by a strong wind. Training by 1-14 to a single point at the break, Leitrim improved considerably in the second half and outscored their opponents by 1-4 to 1-3. Again there was a long injury list but Leitrim used the unlimited substitution rule to take a look at all of the players on the panel with a total of twenty four players used during the game. With two losses to date, Leitrim’s next game in the League against Limerick in two weeks time is crucial to Division 2 survival. Limerick lost their opening three games and a win for Leitrim will ensure that Limerick are relegated and Leitrim remain safe and qualify for the quarter finals.
