On Saturday Clonmel Town’s U13 squad headed to Kerry with a tough away draw in the SFAI national cup to take on Killorglin in their home ground known locally as the ‘’Dragons den’’.
The ground was full of supporters for the 2:30pm kickoff with most belonging to Killorglin but Town had a good turn out of their die hard supporters that made the long journey to cheer on the lads.
It wasn’t long before the Town supporters had a chance to be heard with Rhys O Regan dispossessing the Killorglin tip-off and Ross Gavin passing wide to Sam Dwyer who found the back of the net after ten seconds of play. Killorglin tried hard to regain some ground but the Town boys put on an awesome display of football and kept the action firmly in the home sides half, Killorglin did well in not conceding another goal until Captain David Brannigan struck a free kick high over the keepers head to make it 2-0 after 23 minutes.
The Clonmel Town boys now wait to see who they will face in the semi finals, but with only one game standing between them and a place in the national final one thing is for certain these boys have had one hell of a year.
