Ladies claim county junior league title

Clonmel Commercials

Clonmel Commercials

This year gets better and better for Commercials when on Sunday last another County title came our way with our Junior Ladies winning the County League final. Played in miserable conditions we defeated Boherahan on a score of 2-10 to 3-4. This team had 13 minors playing against a strong opposition and in a game of high quality the girls played some great football.

In the first half the girls created a lot of chances but with the final pass not reaching its target scores were slow to come. A goal by Sarah Ryan put Commercials in the lead after twenty minutes but three goals by Boherlahan gave them a lead on a score of 3-3 to 1-4. Commercials upped their game in the second half with a super team performance to outscore Boherlahan by 1-6 to 0-1 with the goal scored by Haley Lonergan.

The running, support play and football ability came to the fore during the second half and they richly deserved this win. This is the second Adult County title this team has won in the last two years and if the girls continue to improve further county titles will surely come their way. Well done to Michael and Keith for all the work.

Main Field : This is now closed for repairs and will reopen in early January

Bag Packing : We are bag packing in Tesco from Friday December 21 to Monday 24. All parents and players both juveniles and adults are expected to give some time for this very important fundraiser. We have had a fantastic year on the playing fields for the club and for us to get better and bigger as a club and for us to promote football in Clonmel we need everybody to help to raise funds. More details next week.
