Playing away from home in Dundalk, only two weeks before Christmas its testament to the dedication of this young squad that 28 players were available for selection. Absolutely everyone got game-time and played an integral part in this compelling victory. All the lads stood up and made an extremely good account of themselves 👏👏
With such a large squad of players playing a vital part in the game it would be impossible to mention each one by name but we will make the effort to highlight a number of performances.
Jack “Cheese String” Quinn, today captain lead by example showing great bravery winning turnover after turnover and was consistently the first man to the rucks.
Max McCann showed why he’s called “The General” organising his troops with a masterful and confident performance.
Luke “The Sniper” Murray let nothing by on the wings making some really tough tackles and had his BEST GAME EVER in a Clon jersey.
Corey “Ice-Man” O’Byrne cut through the oppositions defence like a hot knife through butter and scored a magnificent solo try in the process.
Gareth “Ladies Man” Brady and Oran “The Stampede” Murphy showed how effective they can be and were dangerous whenever they got the ball from any part of the pitch.
Conor “The Assassin” Langabeer was as tough as nails and made a countless wonderful bone crunching tackles.
Elliot “The Rocket” Walsh was as slippery as an eel and showed glimpses pure magic.
Liam “Bumfluff” Goodwin has gone from strength to strength this season and has matured into a fantastic leader.
At this stage its to be expected but Gillers was like a sniper with the boot and ran in a try for good measure.
Jack “The Rash” O’Sullivan was like white on rice and didn’t give the Dundalk opposition an inch.
I could go on and on but as you can tell from the above every player made a contribution to what was a stunning victory. Well done young men….. The future is bright for Clon with this fantastic bunch of young men 👏👏👍
