Cloone GAA Club Notes 21/11/2017

BACK IN THE DAY – In the early seventies the under 16 championship came immediately after the under 14 and on June 25th 1971 Cloone defeated Gortletteragh in the Grange on a scoreline of 0 14pts to 0 12pts. The stats from the game would indicate that Gortletteragh dominated the early exchanges but that Cloone turned a super second half and won the game by two points. Cloone lined out as follows, L Bohan, B Mulvey, J Gormley, S McHugh. M Mulvey, M McCrann G Mulvey, E Moran A Monaghan, C Moran, P McGarty, P McCrann, T McHugh, G  Lennon J Dillon. The last game in the group was against a more seasoned Bornacoola team who defeated Cloone by a big score, and while much the same team lined out, the changes saw Sean Doherty don the number one shirt, and Pat Kilkenny coming at number 15.

MANAGEMENT TEAM – We are delighted to announce that Niall Murray has agreed to continue as intermediate team manager for 2018 and that Alan Canning has been added to the management team to join Niall, Padraig, and Keith.
