Curracloe girls lift Under-10 crown

■ CURRACLOE BECAME the first club of the season to receive a trophy when league Chairman, Mick Doyle, presented the Premier champions with their award on Saturday.

They had wrapped up the title weeks back but unfortunately picked up an easier than expected three points when closest challengers Bree United were unable to field a team.

Campile kept alive ther chance of catching Bree for runners-up when they travelled to Bunclody and came away 2-0l winners, and if they now beat Forth Celtic in their remaining game, they will join Bree on 15 points and both sides will have to play off for second place.

In Division 1, Ballindaggin travelled to St. Joseph's and two Aoife Devereux goals gave them the three points to make them champions and pick up their first underage league title.

Division 2A saw a major upset when Bridge Rovers beat leaders Kilmore United 2-1 on Saturday, while Duncannon took over at the top of the division after drawing with St. Leonards during the week and beating them 1-0 on Saturday.

The top sides still have to meet and a draw will be enough to give Duncannon the title. Moyne Rangers are on the verge of collecting their first title after beating Courtown Hibs 6-0, with Aideen Byrne scoring five and Abigail Gordon getting one.

Gorey Celtic proved too strong for St. Joseph's second team and came away comfortable winners.
