Friday 8th April 2011
Ballingarry AFC were crowned Division 1 champions for the third time on Friday last (April 8th 2011) without kicking a ball. The 2-0 loss suffered at home by St Itas to Glantine Rovers means that Ballingarry can not be caught with the 36 points accumulated from a so far unbeaten league campaign which sees them return to the Premier at the first time of asking. The return of George Quinlivan to the helm has delivered instant success. At this point they are a massive 13 points clear of their nearest rivals and now the focus must surely turn to securing a second league and league cup double. Having proven themselves by far the best team in the league they are surely the team to beat in the divisional cup.
Congratulations to Quinlivan and his squad on their fine achievement.
In other club news this week the 10s bowed out of their cup on Tuesday in Broadford as the locals went through where Jerome O’Connor got Ballingarrys score. On Saturday last the 8s progressed to the second round of the cup when Michael Molloy got all four goals in the 4-0 win at Glin Rovers.
