Soccer - Following the disappointment of losing last week, Cleere’s Bar returned to winning ways last week in the Kilkenny & District Floodlit league Division Two courtesy of a 2-0 victory over table strugglers Gathabawn.

Despite Gathabawn enjoying a considerable amount of possession, Cleere’s led 1-0 at the interval thanks to a Cathal Power strike.

Cleere’s continued to survive Gathabawn pressure after the restart, but a quick counter-attack proved decisive.

A long goal-kick upfield from Niall Kennedy saw Colm Kennedy break free of the opposition defence before rounding the goalkeeper to slide the ball into an empty net.

Cleere’s victory means they stay just a solitary point behind table toppers OS United who remain unbeaten.

Last night(Tuesday) Cleere’s played Rafter Dempsey’s in the Loreto, while next Monday night(10th December), they will play Average Joes.
