The 2020 Senior hurling campaign was most unusual in any ways with the late start due to the Covid 19 pandemic, John Meaney and his selectors didn’t have a lot of time to prepare their players following the resumption of training in late June with a Championship start in late July.
Their first game in Walsh Park in front of a crowd of 200 due to restrictions was against Clonea, the Westerners proved a strong opposition and it wasn’t until the closing stages that Sion pulled away to get their first win of the campaign, two weeks later they faced local rivals Roanmore in a strangely subdued Walsh Park and though they started brightly they lost out on a blisteringly hot day they were unable to overcome the deficit, their best game of the season followed the following week when smarting from the defeat the previous week they shocked a heavily fancied De La Salle side with a blistering second half display to book their place in the semi final the next week.
Passage were the opponents in the Semi final and while Sion staged a late comeback it proved too late as the men from the fishing village progressed to the County final.
There were many positives to be taken from the campaign especially with the emergence of new young players making the move to Senior and the return of a couple of experienced campaigners to the ranks, hopefully 2021 will prove to be a more normal year both on and off the pitch.
