Cloone Club Notes – 06/8/17

WE had a very busy weekend of activities starting on Thursday evening with the historic first ever
Thursday evening game played in the Leitrim championship. It was very interesting to note that this
fixture received notable criticism in the local media. Contrary to the criticism, it has to be applauded
that two clubs in Leitrim can agree to play a championship game on a Thursday night. Well done to
both clubs. The criticism was totally unjustified and came from somebody that didn’t know what
they were talking about. In relation the Author’s family playing with Leitrim, or being asked to play
with Leitrim they will probably follow in the author’s footsteps and continue to play their football in
Dublin. I’m not aware that they are on any inter County manager’s list, but probably Jim Gavin will
have first call. It’s a pity that people who don’t know what they are talking about would refrain from
making a fool of themselves on a subject that they have turned their back on.

Well done to team on a fantastic performance on Sunday last beating Killtubrid in round two of the
Leitrim Intermediate championship. This was a fantastic result and a credit to everybody involved.
Our next game is on Saturday next V Glenfarne Kiltyclogher on Saturday evening next in Ballinamore.

We wish the very best to star player Mark Creegan who heads off to Debuai on Friday next. Mark
will be a huge loss to our team and has given everything to the club over the last number of years
Enjoy your travels Mark.

CHAMPIONSHIP. .Another busy championship weekend this week end starting with Ballinamore
Sean o Heslins versus Aughawillian on Friday night. A Great game in prospect.
