Our minor footballers came up just short in the Premier 1 Minor Final against Eire Og last Sunday. 

The first half proved a difficult affair for the young Douglas side. The team were not able to convert their huge workrate into scores and only managed to raise two white flags in the first half, through James Holland and Brian Hartnett. The challenge was all the more difficult when Robbie O'Mahony was harsly black carded for an innocuous challenge. The half time whistle saw Douglas trailing seven points to two. 

The second half looked like it was going to prove equally difficult of the Douglas team, but 10 minutes in to the half, they sprang in to life and the comeback began. James Holland slotted over a free he won himself, and a cracking finish from goal-getter-supreme Conor Russell meant that the deficit that once sat at eight points was now down to five. 

James Holland added another point, but then disaster struck as Eire Og somehow managed an onslaught on their goal and a rare break forward saw them score a goal of their own. Trailing by six points, lesser teasm would have given up the ghost, but this team has character in spades and re-doubled their efforts. 

Conor Russell split the points, following good work from Joseph Harte. The Douglas supporters had reason to celebrate soon after when a direct run from Russell, saw the ball floated in to the square, where captain Cian Baldwin wasn't to be denied as he crashed the ball in to the back of the net. Just a point seperated the teams and Eire Og looked to have sealed the victory when they added a point. A Conor Russell free meant the minimum again seperated the sides and despite one last final push, the equaliser evaded or lads. 

This group of players and mentors have done the club proud all year long. Sunday was a disappointing day, but no doubt,  better days lie ahead for these players at the next level.

Cian Baldwin is hoping to lead our Minor Footballers to their third Premier 1 county title on Sunday at 3:30 in Carrigaline against Eire Og. Cian is a hardworking wing forward who possesses the ability to open defences with pinpoint passes and also split the points from distance. 'Baldy' is an accomplished dual star and was a member of the under 21 football panel who captured the county title against Cill na Martra a few weeks ago. With the county final looming this weekend, we took the chance to get to know him a bit better.
