Calry Bohs: Andrew Mullen Premier League Champions

Calry Bohs are Champions

This weekend was all about the Andrew Mullen Premier League, Calry Bohs leading St Johns by a point welcomed their nemesis St Johns to Hazelwood for the decider.

A draw or win would see Calry Bohs crowned Champions, it was a must win for St Johns to take the title but now even more as at stake.


Coolaney United who had a brilliant season and at one stage lead the Championship were at home in their final game to North Sligo side Benbulben FC on Sunday morning. Benbulben opened the scoring on ten minutes Daithi Mc Gloin netted. Coolaney were back in the fray six minutes later when Stephen Patton hit the equaliser and three minutes later Patton buried his second goal to leave Coolaney ahead at the break.

The second half was a tight affair until sixteen minutes in when Ciaran Mc Murray rattled the back of the Benbulben net and now Coolaney were in charge, Declan Mc Cormack eight minutes from time hit the fourth and final goal for Coolaney United that ensured a massive three points.

The young guns of Benbulben never gave up and two minutes from time Oisin Gilmartin rifled home the second goal for the North siders.


This result left Coolaney United in runners up spot on forty-four points so now the pressure was really on St Johns a draw would see them take runners up spot on goal difference, a win and their champions or lose and they are in the play off for Super League status against Arrow Harps this was down to the wire and all roads lead to Calry.

Ten minutes into the game and Aaron Flynn had Calry Bohs in front the same player struck again with devastating affect on forty minutes and Calry were sailing. Two minutes later and disaster struck for St Johns when Aaron Tiernan seen red for a high challenge.

The second half was minutes old when Aaron Flynn completed his hat trick for Calry Bohs, St Johns pulled a goal back with a half an hour remaining through Stephen Armstrong, but it was Calry who struck the final goal with a blistering shot from Michael Flynn flying past the St Johns net minder Keelan Dunleavy that wrapped up the game and the Championship for a jubilant Calry Bohs Andrew Mullen Sligo Pallets Premier League Champions Season 21/22.

In the Frank Kennedy Memorial Cup first round Carrick Town hosted Dromahair FC at the Showgrounds in Carrick on Shannon. The home side emerged winners by the odd goal in seven in a thriller of a game. David Regan scored twice for the Town one that proved to be the winner. Cormac Smith following in Dad’s Frankie’s boots scored as did Conor Mc Goldrick that secured a quarter final Cup game against Coolaney United. Dromahair gave a great account of themselves with Stephen Mullan scoring twice and a superb third strike from Sean Conlon pushing the Town to the limits on a great day for grassroots football in Carrick on Shannon.
