Ballymacnab 0-13 Clan na Gael 0-09

Our Reserves capped off an excellent year on Sunday when they collected the League title on a scoreline of 0-13 to 0-09 at the Athletic Grounds. The title goes along with  the winning of the Championship earlier in the year. 

Clans were first off the mark with a point within the first minute but a long range effort from Gary McKee levelled matters before a Rory Gray point gave the ' Nab an early lead. Clans levelled matters on the 5th minute before 3 long accurate frees from Brendan Toner gave a 3 point lead by the 18th minute. Two further points for the opposition were exchanged with points from Rory Gray and Aodhan Toner to leave Ballymacnab leading 7-4 at the break. 

For the second half, Ballymacnab management made a number of positional switches which saw Ryan Kennedy join the attack and Dominic McParland introduced to the defence and they immediately made an impact with three points from Ryan. Clans responded with points from their own before Gareth Watters and Brendan Toner (2) kicked further insurance points. 

After the game, CCC Secretary Jimmy McKee presented The Cup to Captain Chris Kennedy. 

Well done to all the players for their efforts on the day with Richard Gribben, Colm McKee and Ryan Kennedy leading by example. Congratulations to the Management team of Neil McKee, Mickey McGivern and Paddy Murdoch for their efforts in assembling the squad and in completing an historic 'double'.
