Donacloney fail to bag third win on the bounce


Donacloney Firsts failed to finish the season off with their third win in a row when Newmills visited.

In an end of season game with nothing to play for, both sides took a while to get into any kind of rhythm and it was Newmills who took advantage from a corner that wasn’t cleared by the home defence and led to a simple tap in.

The second goal came from great play by the Newmills stand-out player and captain who used his pace to get in behind the ‘Cloney defence and log the outrushing Derek Curran.

The second half saw ‘Cloney’s best chances of the game however Tommy McElroy and Kane Croft were unable to convert these chances to get their side back in the game, and Newmills then killed the game off with a third.

Team; Derek Curran, Jason Stokes, Damien Higgins, Davy Sterritt, Tim Carson, Johnny Brown, Gary Knox, David Acheson, Tommy McElroy, Kiefer O’Boyle, Kane Croft.

Donacloney Reserves finish off their season at home to Silverwood United Reserves on Tuesday night.
