Albion turned their 6-1 defeat to Kinsale into a 7-0 win over CLon AFC exactly a week after beating the same team 2-1 away from home. The game started brightly for Albion with Ben Dillon putting them 1-0 up in under 5 mins with a lovely chip over the keeper. His brother Conan had Albion 2-0 up inside 20 mins after a fine solo effort was finished under the keeper. Aidan Hayes, making his first Albion appearance in 5 seasons, was kept busy in small spells pulling off a number of saves to keep Albions clean sheet in tact. It was soon 3-0 with Ben finishing a move from Dan Coleman. 3-0 half time.
Albion took their attacking game to Clon in the 2nd half, pairing Rob Daly with Tim Harrington up front. Daly made it 4-0 with a lovely through ball from Conan taking him passed the defenders and on to finish low to the left. It was 5-0 though Daly once more with a fantastic volley after Harringtons assist. He soon had it at 6-0 win a lovely solo run to finish from a tight angle just outside the 6 yard box. And he got his 4th and Albion 7th when Martin Ryans cross found his head, heading passed the helpless keeper.
