Clonmel Town schoolboys soccer

Clonmel Town’s U-12 A team maintained their unbeaten run with a very entertaining 1-1 draw away to rivals St. Kevin’s. Town took the lead 15 minutes into the second half when Josh Kennedy pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area to turn the ball into the net. St. Kevin’s pushed hard for an equaliser, which came with 5 minutes remaining and a draw was a fair result. The man of the match was Jack Moore.

Town’s U-16s were made to work hard for a 2-1 victory over Peake Villa in this top of-the-table clash of the unbeaten teams. Villa took the lead in the 16th minute with their first real attack. Town regrouped and got back on level terms when man of the match Dean Clarke scored in the 36th minute. Town got the winner in the 70th minute after a well- worked free kick between Dylan Kennedy and Ryan Lambe, with Dylan slotting home.
