It was a disappointing weekend on the playing pitch with the two competitive games played resulting in narrow defeats. First into action was an experimental U21 Football team who overcame a Kilbrittian side in a useful challenge game played on Saturday evening.Further challenge games are scheduled before their opening West Cork championship game against O'Donovan Rossa. The Senior team faced a tough challenge in their Division 1 game with an away game against reigning league champions Nemo Rangers. Despite having to name an understrength side due to a number of injuries and illness Clon put in a very encouraging performance. The sides were level entering the final 10 minutes before Nemo pulled away with the final three scores to win 1-12 to 1-09. The Intermediate side played Grenagh on Sunday afternoon in Ahamilla. They also put in a very competitive performance against a physically bigger side. The concession of the only 2 goals of the game proved to be the difference as Grenagh won 2-09 to 0-09.
