Swan Bar Div 4 league Champions – The club made history last Sunday after an extra time thriller that left spectators on the edge of their seat right till the end. Three late scores in extra time secured a 1.13 to 1.10 victory over Sean O Heslins. Damien McGourty and Colm Maguire were reeling in the years as they fired over 2 of those 3 scores with young Niall Mc Gourty putting over another fine effort to ensure the cup was going back to Ballinaglera. It was a fantastic team performance which produced some excellent fielding from Anton McGourty and Pauric Clarke around the middle. Hugh Gilmartin commanded the goal line superbly and a tight defence was marshalled by Barry Gilmartin and the Crawford brothers, John and Ryan, with James Mc Dowell and Patrick Mc Grail putting in some excellent tackles and running the wings all day. Captain fantastic Rory Mc Partland was the anchor at centre back. Up front the experienced Noel Mc Morrow worked tirelessly, with Ciaran Cornyn and Oisin McGourty providing excellent link up play and Gerard Clarke, Maguire and Mc Gourty chipping in with some vital scores. Micheal Crawford joined his two brothers on the field and made an immediate impact off the bench drawing important frees at a crucial stage. Well done to the whole panel, it was great to see the numbers on the subs bench. Congratulations to the team and hard working management of John Mulvey, Enda Gilraine and Barry Mc Gourty. Thanks to all the fantastic supporters who came out in great numbers. A great day for the parish!
