MOUNTJOY United rounded off a magnificent season by capturing the Lowry Corry Cup for the first time in the club’s history after defeating Fivemiletown United in Wednesday evening’s under-18 showpiece final at Ferney Park.

Goals by Luke Stockdale and man of the match Joshua Graham secured a memorable and thoroughly deserved victory for Alan Nesbitt’s side against the Fermanagh and Western U17 League champions.

The cup success brought the curtain down on a hugely-successful season for the Lisnagirr Road club. David Gilfillan’s senior side were crowned Division Two champions, the second string secured promotion while the thirds won the Fermanagh and Western Reserve Division Three title.

A delighted Nesbitt said winning a first Lowry Corry Cup was the perfect end to a wonderful season.

“It’s the cherry on the cake,” he said.

“It was the last game of the season and the lads were determined to end it on ahigh.”

Scott Johnston was on target for Fivemiletown.
