Dillon's Cross FC, now in their third season, finally seem to have got the ix right. They went top of division 3B for the first time in the club's history at the beginning of November last and have great ambitions for this season.

Damien Wiley and Greg Creagh are now the permanent management team with Creagh, famed for gruelling training sessions in Mayfield Sports Complex, concentrating on the fitness side. Club secretary Wiley was one of the founding members along with Mark Riordan.

This year the squad has a couple of new signings and some old faces have returned. The defence has benefited hugely with the signing of Fionn Blake, Sean McAuliffe, and Tipperary man Gary Byrne.

Centre forward Clive Kiely returned from Glasheen and has contributed eight goals to their campaign to date. One of Kiely's partners up front is new signing 18 year old Dylan Cronin. Kevin Cooney has taken over between the sticks and has proved to be top class. John Kiely, the oldest of three brothers in the team, is the captain.

The team's best result this season is undoubtedly their thrilling 4-3 extra-time win over Ballinhassig A in the AOH Cup. The Cross are well in the title fight in 3B and are hoping for a run in the City Challenge Cup.

The Three Horse Shoes has pledged support for another year and the club sends a special word of thanks to Jo Bonner and also to loyal backroom man Frankie Woods.

The full panel for this season is: Kevin Cooney, Wesley Kiely, Fionn Blake,

Brian Meany, Paudie O'Flynn, Philip Kelly, Mark Riordan, Stuart Crichton,
