Glencar Manorhamilton captured back to back Senior League and Championship Doubles when they defeated Annaduff by one point in the Gallogly Catering Division 1 League Final in Ballinamore on Saturday 13/11/10.
Annaduff came very close to bringing off a major shock and they led this contest all the way from the 11th minute. Approaching injury time they looked a certain bet for the title but it was in this period of play that the champions displayed their never say die attitude to shoot four unanswered points. The North Leitrim team only secured their victory in the sixth minute of injury time when they went ahead for the first time in the match. Annaduff did push forward in a bid to get the equaliser which they would have thoroughly deserved but it was not to be and the Glencar Manor men held on to win despite getting one hell of a fright. If Annaduff are to take any consolation from the defeat it will be that they had the champions at sixes and sevens for long periods of the game and during 2010 they have made tremendous progress which saw them reach this Division 1 League final and the semi final of the championship. If they can push on from this, they will surely be a team to watch in the seasons ahead. We extend congratulations to Glencar Manorhamilton on their victory on a scoreline of 0-10 to 0-9.
