A very understrength and youthful Davitts minor team were defeated 2-10 to 0-10 by Naoimh Pádraig in the Summer League in Ballindine on Friday evening. Davitts fought very hard all through with corner backs Brian Clarke and Gerard McWalter in top form in front of goalie David Mitchell, the team captain for this game in the absence of Michael Waldron and Josh Ronayne. Cathal Higgins, Tommy Heneghan and Dara Halligan did well in the half back line. At midfield Mark Ronayne put in his usual all action display and got great support from Clive Hennigan who scored two good points. Up front, debutante Liam Noone showed why he is so highly rated, scoring five points, and combining well with the livewire Tommy Waldron (0-1), while John Macken, Darren Connolly (0-1) and Jason Connolly (0-1) all worked very hard.
