‘Joy safe as Tummery triumph in Mulhern Cup decider

Thumbs up… David Gilfillan’s Mountjoy United avoided the drop today.

MOUNTJOY United secured their Division One status earlier today by hitting Irvinestown Wanderers for six at Lisnagirr Road.

Braces apiece by Stuart Graham and Lee Frazer with further goals by Andrew Gilfillan and Derek Matthews helped David Gilfillan”s team to a resounding 6-2.

That convincing win means that Magheraveely have been relegated despite a 3-3 draw with Irish Junior Cup winners Enniskillen Rangers.

That stalemate – Rangers second in as many games after being held 2-2 at Beragh Swifts on Thursday night – also has huge implications at the top end of the table.

After a 4-0 win at Lisbellaw United, defending champions Strathroy Harps are now top with 52 points with two games remaining, the same points total as NFC Kesh who have played a game more.

Rangers are third with 41 points with five games remaining.

In Division Three meanwhile Augher Stars and Enniskillen Galaxy will have to play-off to see which team gets promoted as runner-up.

Galaxy were held 2-2 at Orchard Farm and that means Damien Love’s side and Stars both finished on 32 points.

On Friday evening Tummery Athletic were crowned Mulhern Cup winners after an extra-time victory over Enniskillen Town United.

The sending off of Town defender Nicky Dunbar proved a major turning point and in extra-time Ruairi Sludden and Emmett McNamee both netted to win the prestigious trophy for the fourth time in the club’s history.
