Minor County Final 2013-09-24 17:23:00

Having beaten Tracton in the county semi final the previous week, next up was Bride Rovers in the county final in Killavullen last Sunday. Going into the game all involved knew it was going to be a very big ask for Clyda to overcome a very strong Bride Rovers side. From the off Bride Rovers settled into the game very well, putting over some fine points. Clyda looked a bit nervous, and had some wides, that on other days would have sailed over the bar. To their credit, this very young Clyda side, with only three players on the age battled hard throughout the game, showing great heart and spirit right up to the final whistle ,never giving up the fight. Bride Rovers ran out deserving winners at the final whistle. Well done to captain Sean O Connor and all the team for getting to the final, and to their mentors Padraic O Mullane, Dan O Sullivan, Thomas Harold, Niall Crowley and Barty O Connor for all their time and work during the year. TEAM: Gearoid O Shea, Darragh Walsh, Chris Fitzpatrick, Ronan Flanagan, Sean O Connor, James Buckley, Conor Crowley, Tim Buckley, Darragh Meaney, Colin Kelly, Conor Roche, Seamus Ronayne. SUBS: David O Shea, Mark Daly, Shane O Hanlon, John Martin O Hanlon, Gavin Dennehy, Mike Forde, Mark O Sullivan.
