The U21 footballers bowed out of the championship to a fancied Illen Rovers side on a score line of 0-13 to 0-10 last Friday night under lights in Dunmanway. This was a close contest and the result was in doubt up until the last kick of the game. The very young Newcestown outfit, with 8 starting players qualifying for the minor grade again this year showed enormous courage in front of a sizable attendance. Was it not for four excellent saves from the Illen ‘keeper the result could have been very different.
