St Francis crowned U21 A Football Champions

Congratulations to St Francis who were 1-4 to 0-3 winners over Glencar Manorhamilton in the U21A Football Championship Final played in Pairc Sean on Saturday last.

Weather conditions certainly didnt allow for a free flowing game of football in this low Scóring encounter. St Francis led at the interval by 0-2 to no score having played with the advantage of a gael force wind and Glencar Manor were fancied in the 2nd half to push on for victory. St Francis had other ideas and got the opening two scores of the second half (1-1). From this point on their defence was outstanding as they broke downÓglencar Manor attack after attack and patiently built from the back and supported each other shoulder to shoulder in all their play. Glencar Manor had plenty of possession and opportunity to win the game but on the day they couldn’t match the hunger of the Allen Gaels/Ballinaglera combination. The St Francis Captain Thomas Cornyn was presented with the U21 A trophy by Cathaoirleach Joe Flynn in scenes of great celebration. Hearty congratulations to St Francis on a terrific win.
