Donacloney were beaten 3-0 by Moira Albion on Saturday, another blow by the same side that knocked the Cloney out of the cup just a few weeks previous.

Errol Curran brought Chris Clague in for his first start for the firsts, and Stuart Bickerstaff was back.

Donacloney had chances early in the game, Tommy McElroy’s header came off the post, and Bickerstaff’s strike hit the crossbar.

It was Moira who took a 1-0 lead in to half-time.

Moira scored a second with a shot from 25 yards with ‘keeper Derek Curran having no chance to stop it.

Johnny Brown had a chance to make it 2-1 but missed the target and Moira scored their third in the dying moments of the game.

Donacloney play Armagh Blues at The Holmes this weekend.
