We have decided to up the game considerably and sought the assistance of an accomplished journalist to write the match report for this particular Minor game. Who better to pen the report than the daughter of a respected club family, the sister of a proud Cilles Minor footballer and Cilles Number 1 fan, Hazel Bell. Hazel took the time to complete a detailed match report from Mondays game which inadvertently put Denis Collins out of a job. We would like to say a HUGE thanks to Hazel for helping us here, for crafting a beautifully written match report, for turning out in all weather to support her brother and his comrades as they dig deep week in, week out. As a token of our appreciation we would also like to send Hazel a Cilles Pink Jersey as a gift for writing this report. Enjoy….
