U16 Boys are All County Div 1 League Champions

Many congratulations to our U16 boys and their mentors who clinched the All County League Div 1 title in a pulsating game with Ballyholland on Wednesday 5th July 2017. Clonduff are currently fielding two teams at this age level - the All County team and a Development team in the South Down League - they all attended the match on Wednesday evening in Mayobridge.

It was a wonderful game of football - Clonduff found themselves down 7 points having conceded two early goals. They showed great character and went in at the break trailing by a single point, the keeper having saved a penalty. The game had been levelled up early in the second half but misfortune befell them after just eight minutes when one of the forwards received a straight red card for retaliation - their character and skill really shone through as at times it seemed that they had the extra man. In the dying minutes Clonduff were three points up but back came Ballyholland with another goal. The Yellas did have the final chance to win it but shot wide. It went to extra time and Clonduff restored to the full complement were two up at the turnaround and finished the game on a score of 3-13 to 3-10.

Panel Back row: Eoin Murray, Peter McEvoy, Kieran Mulholland, Padraig Clancy, Padraig Morgan, Aidan Markey, Shane Parr, Eamon Brown, Darragh McAlinden, Oisin Tumilty, Pearse Cunningham, Darragh Lavery, Charlie Kerr, Rory McKernan, Declan McCloskey-Hudson, Jake Morgan; Front row: Ben Magee, Sean McCumiskey, Conor Parr (vice captain), Aodhan Quinn Padraig Kelly, Tom Close (captain), Laurence Brannigan, Jayme McDonald, Charlie Brown, Oran Wilson, Ciarán Brannigan, Matthew Brannigan, Eugene Lively.

IRISH NEWS YOUNG VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR 2017

Many congratulations to 22-year-old Sarah Bloomfield who was selected as Irish News Young Volunteer of the Year 2017 at the Annual Awards in The Wellington Park Hotel, Belfast on Friday 12th May. Sarah played both Camogie and Ladies Football and began volunteering in the Club at a young age. She did all sorts of jobs around the club but when she contracted an illness in her teen she had to give up playing but by that time she was an established coach with U12 LGFA. She concentrated on her coaching for her studies and had to go to Preston England for her final year - she flew home every week to accompany the team to games on Wednesday nights and take training on Sunday mornings. Apart from that she did the bar in the Social Club, washed jerseys, refereed games and trained as National LGFA Linesperson!
