Tinryland struggled in more ways than one in the opening game of the J.F.C. B at the Fenagh training centre on Wednesday 9th August. As throw in time approached only 13 players were available with the team forced to line out with 14 until two more players arrived early in the first half. 5 minutes after the start Tinryland’s task was rendered almost hopeless as the Naomh Eoin men had scored 3 goals and one point in the opening 5 minutes. It took the men in blue and white a full 22 minutes to register a score when mid-fielder David O’Shea slotted over a point and by the time referee Richard Sutton had sounded the half time whistle Tinryland trailed by 16 points on a scoreline of 5-3 to 0-2 with Michael Delaney scoring the best point of the match in the 24th minute before taking up goalkeeping duties replacing Mick Moore who had attended the venue as a spectator.

The second half produced a slightly better effort from the Tinryland men even though Naomh Eoin registered the opening 3 points of the half in the 35th, 36th and 40th minutes. A Jason Curran goal in the 41st minute put some sort of respectability on the scoreboard but the Myshall scoring machine of Keith Hogan, Michael Treacy and Eoin Doyle never relented and by the finish they had amassed a score of 7 goals and 11 points. Tinryland tacked on a further 1-1 before the end with Brian Farrell finding the net near the end and Jason Curran and Bobby Whelan adding 2 points which left the final score Naomh Eoin 7-11 Tinryland 2-4. The No. 2 Junior team is back in action on this coming Wednesday 16th August against Kildavin-Clonegal in the Fenagh Training Centre at 7.45 p.m.

Tinryland: Mick Moore, Alan Byrne, Sean Kirwan, Sean Regan, Brian Farrell 1-0, Alan Kirwan, Darragh Townsend, David O’Shea 0-1, John Whyte, Jason Curran 1-1, James Murphy, Gary Scully, Niall Bermingham, Bobby Whelan 0-1, Michael Delaney 0-1. Subs John Jackson, Ross Byrne.
