Shamrocks 1-6 Ballinhassig 0-9
It was the very first outing for the Club in the South-East Cork B Football League for a number of years. Playing in the new pitch in Ballinhassig, the two teams gave of their best and at the end a draw was a fair result. Both teams missed some good opportunities but Shamrocks could not fault their players for effort and honest endeavour. At halftime Ballinhassig led 0-6 to 0-4.
Shamrocks took the game to their opponents from the throw in in the second half and was it not for some wayward shooting we could have collected the two points. A draw is much better than a loss and we can look forward to some more fine games in this competition.
