U17s progress in inaugural Munster Championship

The Tipperary under 17 Footballers have won their first ever Munster championship clash.

They beat Clare 0-14 points to 0-10 at Semple Stadium.

The new Under 17s competition will replace the Minor grade next year.

Tipp lead 0-08 to 0-02 after a strong first half and extended the advantage to 0-10 to 0-02 before the Banner fought their way into the game.

Manager Matt Doherty says his lads tired a bit after the break but he’s happy they had enough to see it out.

They’ll now play Kerry in next month’s semi-final.
