                   Fielding a new look team, with many of last years panel missing, the Brian Dillons Junior (B) Footballers failed in the opening game of the 2015 City Division Junior (2) Football League when they were beaten by Delanys (B), 3-12 to 1-6, at Delanys Ground on Sunday afternoon, 8th February, 2015. Despite the best efforts of the depleted Brian Dillons side, particularly in the opening half, a goal conceded just before half-time seemed to swing the pendulum in Delanys favour , who proceeded to win convincingly in the end. One positive aspect, for Brian Dillons, was the performances of four Minor players, Thomas McGrath,Ethan Keane Mark Sheedy and Gavin Walsh, who were all playing in their first adult game.  Scorers for Brian Dillons were; Gavin Walsh, 1-2; Brian Manning,0-2;  Seanie O"Dwyer, 0-1; and Eoin Hennessy,0-1.  The Brian Dillons team lined out as follows; John Shek; Stephen Coughlan; Derek McDonnell; Thomas McGrath; Eoin Hennessy; Kevin O"Sullivan; Stephen Kearney Brian Manning; James Murphy; Gavin Walsh; Ethan Keane; Mark Sheedy; Sean Kelly; Seanie O"Dwyer; and Jason Heffernan;   Subs; Alan Delaney for Jason heffernan (half time) and Jason Heffernan for Stephen Coughlan (black carded after 40 mins.).
