CROSSABEG-BALLYMURN entered the history books in St. Patrick's Park, Enniscorthy, on Sunday, December 13, when they completed the Greenstar Under-21 Premier championship double for the first time in the club's history.

The hurling crown had been captured against Glynn-Barntown last month, and a brace of goals in the third quarter ensured that the football title would be added as Starlights were defeated on a 3-7 to 0-8 scoreline.

Crossabeg-Ballymurn led by 1-5 to 0-3 at half-time thanks to a goal from full-forward Robert Byrne. And when his second major was quickly followed by another from attacking wing-back Cian Lambert, the title was in the bag.

The Over The Water crew are the first-ever to win the Under-21 Premier football championship just one year after capturing the Roinn 1 crown.
