Leitrim Minors win in Fermanagh

Last Sunday, Mohills Gavin Kelly came off the bench and scored a tally of 2-01 as Leitrim come from four points down at half-time to beat Fermanagh in a challenge match in Derrygonelly.

Leitrim played against a strong gale in the first half and went in at half time 0-06 to 0-02 down. This was a very good defensive performance by the Leitrim lads. Paul Ellis and Emmett Burke stood out at centre back and corner back as they knocked back attack after attack. Stephen Conaty at mid field also showed well.

The second half was a complete turn around as Leitrim took over in mid-field and Kelly hit 2-01 as well as setting up two other goals. Garry Reynolds, Ronan Kennedy and Dermot Reynolds also played well for the men in white and Blue. The Leitrim team fielded in the St Marys strip because of a clash of colours.
