Good workout for Rearcross 'B' against Thurles Town in pre-season friendly

The visitors made a spritely start and hit the front on five minutes after find the net following a long throw in to the box.

Thurles went 2 nil up in the 18th minute and then Paul Ryan came to the rescue after heading clear at the near post to deny the visitors a third.

Rearcross goalkeeper Brian Hammersley had another fine outing in goals.
