SEANS SHOW NO MERCY TO CLONES IN SEMI MEETING

Sean McDermotts 2-21 Clones 1-09 JOHN GRAHAM A sharper, more clinical Sean MCDermotts experienced little difficulty in booking their place in the final of the Universal Graphics Junior Football Championship when they proved too potent for a disappointing Clones in what turned out to be a quite one sided affair, particularly in the second-half, in Scotstown, on Saturday evening last.
