Lurgan Town Laies knew the destiny of the South 2 league title was in their hands as they travelled to Crossgar to play Kilmore Rec tonight. The away side delivered in style winning their first league title with three game to spare.
Missing four players from the squad, super stopper Emma McClements stepped in to captain the side to the title against a very youthful Kilmore side.
Dani Creaney bagged four as did Tina Brush, Trudi Harbinson got two and further goals from Steph Potts, Caz Laird, Lisa Goodman and Emma Harper saw the league leaders over the finish line. Manager Davy Welshman said: ” I am delighted tonight for everyone connected to the club, the girls have been very focused on this night and from the first game and deserve to be celebrating tonight. Yet again the big squad came into its own as players filtered into diff positions with ease. Special mention to a very youthful Kilmore side who where very much up against it; never stopped going and I’m sure in the next few years we will see this club rise through the leagues. For us now it’s back to training on Thursday as we prepare for a quarter final of Mid Ulster Cup v Portadown on Monday at The Arena. We then play in the league agaub against Newtown on Wednesday. The girls are well aware we still have some huge games left to play this season and with hard work they can add to the league title win tonight.
