Juniors Back In Desmond Cup Final

Ballingarry AFC are back in the Desmond Cup Final after and absence of 5 years. On Friday night last (May 4th 2007) they defeated highly fancied Abbeyfeale 2-0 in Clounreask, with a goal in each half from Denis Kelly, to book their place in the final against another surprise finalist, Newcastle Rovers from Division 2.

In the Premier Division, the Juniors’ League form has improved at an important time of the season, with a 5-2 away hammering of Rathkeale (Friday 24th April) and a 2-0 home win over fellow strugglers Foynes on Sunday last (6th May). These two vital results take Ballingarry up to 7th in the table and ease the worries of relegation for the moment.
