SFL Div 4 Final

30th July 2018

Ellistown: 1 - 13

Rathcoffey: 1 - 10

What a night for Ellistown as our Senior team landed their league title in a lively final in St Conleth’s Park. Rathcoffey pushed us all the way though, a goal from stand out performer Shane Maughan giving Ellistown a 1 point lead at the break. Andy O’Neill then came out with the shooting boots on and nailed three superb unanswered points. Rathcoffey were still well in the game though and were awarded a penalty with only a 4 point deficit late in the game. This was thankfully brilliantly saved by Alan Melia and Ellistown survived the late pressure to deservedly get over the line 1-13 to 1-10. Who else but Andrew McLoughlin grabbed the microphone and delivered the victory speech, he duly thanked Rathcoffey for a good competitive match and the management team Ray O’Sullivan, Lenny and Stephen Byrne.

Well done all, great occasion in our Centenary year!
