Club Notes – 25 October 2018

Shoe City SFL
The last game of the league is with Blayney and will be played on Friday night 26th October under lights in Blayney at 8pm.

Juveniles
U17

The team have qualified for the league semi-final on Sunday the 4th of November against either St. Tiarnach’s or Tyholland at home at 11am.

Cumann na mBunscoil
Well done to the boys of Scoil Mhuire who defeated Loughmourne in their School’s Finals last Saturday. After a titanic battle where the game ebbed and flowed, the boys put in a tremendous last ten minutes to secure victory. Well done to Danica and the players.

New Pitch and Track
Work has been progressing favourably on our new development over the past few weeks. The new full size Prunty Pitch has now been laid, the seeds have been sown and a nice green sward has appeared, which was the subject of much favourable comment from patrons at the Intermediate final on Sunday. The 1km walking track, which will be fully lit, is currently being laid around the outer perimeter of both the new pitch and the existing pitch and should be ready by the end of the month. This of course means that we now move on to the next phase which is the erection of perimeter fencing, balls stops, goal posts and dug outs. To help fund this we will be looking for another year’s contribution from our Clontibret Our Future members and your promoter will be calling with you soon in the coming weeks. Try to be as generous again this year as you have been in the past as much great work has been done and we now want to see it completed.

Intermediate and Minor Finals
It was a busy day at O’Neill Park on Sunday with the MFC and IFC finals bringing the largest crowd of the year. Well done and many thanks to all who contributed to preparing the grounds in the days leading up to the match, especially the volunteers on Saturday, and to the many helpers and stewards who organised and managed the big crowd on the day. This involved getting people in, parked and out efficiently and safely, selling programmes, managing the shop and tea/coffee outlets, providing refreshments for stewards and officials, managing the score board, public address and overall crowd management. A lot of different jobs, but somebody must do them and that’s where volunteerism comes in. A special mention for Eleanor Carville Sullivan whose stunning rendition of Amhran na bhFiann was much appreciated by the large attendance.

Scór na bPáistí
Congratulations to Aidan Deighan and his two quiz teams that came 2nd and 3rd in Scor na bPaisti in Clontibret on Saturday. The teams were Daniel Boylan, Adam Hall, Charlie Moen, Tommy Moen, Niamh O’Connor, Thomas O’Connor, Jack Brady & Stephen McSkeane.

Club Notes – 18 October 2018

Shoe City SFL Clontibret 3-13 Ballybay 2-12
In the penultimate game of the season we claimed some valuable league points in Ballybay on Sunday with a four point win over the recent county finalists. It was a gritty all-round team performance played at a heart stopping pace by both sides. Early wides aside we took a first half lead with a Ballybay goal quickly cancelled by a Conor McManus penalty following a foul on MP O’Dowd while a second goal from Conor following a pass from Vinny Corey gave us a three point half time advantage. The game was won in a blistering third quarter with some excellent points from Conor Mc, Brian Greenan, MP O’Dowd, Pauric Boyle and Cormac Boyle capped by a third Mansy goal. With Dessie Mone now off injured Ballybay gained some upper hand for a series of points and a Chris McGuinness goal to bring the margin back to one but the team rallied to score the last three points to claim a well-earned victory. Last game of the league is with Blayney on 28th October.

U17
The team travel to our neighbours Doohamlet for the re-arranged final round of league fixtures at 11am this Sunday.

New Pitch and Track
Work has been progressing favourably on our new development over the past few weeks.

Intermediate and Minor Finals
It’s a big day at O’Neill Park on Sunday with both the MFC and IFC finals down for decision. First up at 1.30pm it’s the minor final replay between Inniskeen and Carrickmacross followed at 3.30pm by the Intermediate final between Doohamlet and Seans and may well bring the biggest crowd of the year to O’Neill Park for what is the last big championship game. The usual stewards are asked to put the shoulder to the wheel one more time with a few early men required from 12 noon to get the parking set up right.

Shoe City SFL Clontibret 0-13 Carrickmacross 1-12
In a hard fought game in Carrick last Saturday we lost out by two points in the end. Next game is in Ballybay on 14th October with Blayney to play after that.

Juveniles
U17

Congratulations to the players and management of our U17 team who defeated Truagh in the Div 3 Championship last Sunday. After a bright opening and some good play the team had opened up a two goal lead entering the final moments of the first half but a quick fire goal and a point by Truagh left us only 2 points up at halftime. However, when the second half started the boys knuckled down and piled on the pressure on Truagh to open up a considerable gap with a flurry of scores to eventually win on an overall score of 4-12 to 1-12. The boys now move their attention back to league with their next fixture due to take place on Sunday 14th.

U9
The boys travelled to Tyholland last Saturday for an U9 tournament. After some tough games in the group stages the boys entered the shield competition and went all the way to the final. After a terrific performance they had a narrow win against a very gallant St. Eunan’s team from Donegal on a score line of 6 points to 4 to win the match . Well done to the players and management. The next outing is this Sunday for the boys in Keady. Management will be in touch with the details.

Clontibret 1-8 Ballybay 1-15

Despite getting off to a whirlwind start with 1-1 from Conor McManus and a point from Pauric Boyle we failed to capitalise on this and allowed Ballybay regroup to go in two up at half time. The game was still in the melting pot until a Ballybay goal midway through the second half left us with an uphill struggle that in the end we didn’t manage to overcome.

Both teams played extremely well to come out on top in both games. In the first game there was tremendous work rate shown from all players especially Faolain McQuaid in the backline, supported by Korey McSkeane in midfield. Upfront Mathew McNamee and Ben Lowey took some lovely scores. In the second game the boys showed the same ethos as the other team with great tackling and team play on show. Stephen McSkeane was a rock in defence who was well supported by Odhran Sherlock, Craig Brady and Edward Rooney further out the field.

The late Sean Woods
Sympathy is extended to Bridie and family on the death of Sean, former player, club secretary, manager and club trustee. Sean started his football career as a defender playing full back on the 1958 championship winning side, beating Ballybay in the final and in later years made his name as a forward with club, county and province. In the 1968 final against Scotstown he scored the decisive goal following a pass from Joe Smyth and also won a Railway Cup medal with Ulster that year. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
