New Ross Celtic stay in top flight

New Ross Celtic secured their proud status as a top flight club by overcoming Forth Celtic in the Premier Division promotion/relegation play-off in St. Leonards on Sunday.

The New Ross outfit have been a constant in the top tier of Wexford football since the inception of the Premier Division and a single goal was enough to maintain that position.

Mark Lee was brought down in the penalty area in the 25th minute and Steven O'Leary kept his cool from the spot to fire Ross Celtic ahead.

The club are celebrating their 50th anniversary at the end of next season and this was a crucial victory in their rich history.
