Our second team began the season with a defeat to neighbours
Ballinabranna in Ballinaboley Wednesday night.
Ballinabranna fielded experienced senior players Bobby Daly
and Jim Dunne and they helped build up a 2-9 to 0-1 interval lead
with Mick Nevin scoring the solitary 1st half point.
It was a much improved performance from the home side
in the 2nd half with veteran attacker Dinny Byrne netting
a hat trick.
On a positive note, Leighlin outscored Ballinabranna
by 3-3 to 1-6 in the second half but big improvements must be
made ahead of the game away to Kilbride next week.
