HEROIC HUGHES BOOKS FINAL SPOT

Scotstown  2-09 Trillick  2-07 Scotstown became the first Monaghan club to qualify for the AIB Ulster SFC Final since 1994 when they edged out Trillick in an entertaining encounter in Enniskillen last Sunday. Scotstown were pushed all the way by the Tyrone champions, but they got over the line in a tense finish to make their first provincial decider since 1989. Darren Hughes continued his impressive form at full-forward by hitting 2-2 for Scotstown, who also had good performances from the likes of Kieran Hughes, Orin Heaphey and Damien McArdle, while Richard and Niall ...

KILLANNY’S PROSPECTS ENDED

Scotstown       3-11 Killanny        1-11 By JOHN GRAHAM A hungrier, more determined, Scotstown kept their championship aspirations on track and in the process ended Killanny’s interest in this year’s junior series at the end of this at times scrappy encounter that was played in very difficult conditions in St Mary’s Park, Castleblayney, on Sunday afternoon last. Heavy rain overnight and during the entire match turned aspects of this game into something of a lottery and led to a plethora of mistakes by both sides, although it must also be ...

Scotstown 2-13 Magheracloone 1-09 By JOHN GRAHAM SCOTSTOWN finished their season on a winning note by clinching the senior double, adding the Senior Football League title to the championship they had won in October. It was not until the second half of this interesting and entertaining contest that Scotstown looked like winners when they proved too strong in most departments for a Magheracloone side that sorely missed the talents of Tomas Freeman who was unavailable having being involved in an accident recently. Played in ideal conditions this was a contest that produced some great moves, ...

SCOTSTOWN’S STREAK ENDS

Ballinderry 1-08 Scotstown 0-10 by JOHN GRAHAM SCOTSTOWN came oh close to booking their place in the semi-final of the AIB Ulster Club Senior Football Championship at Clones lastSunday but they were caught at the death by a point by Ryan Bell that sent Ballinderry through to a meeting with either Crossmaglen Rangers or Kilcoo. The introduction of substitute Kevin “Moss” McGuckin at the start of the second-half saw Ballinderry take an increasing grip in midfield although it wasn’t until the final quarter that they turned it around as Scotstown had ...

MONAGHAN CLUBS FLY THE FLAG …

By Kevin Carney The years were rolled back last weekend when Monaghan’s finest went toe-to-toe with the best of the rest in the Ulster club competitions. Scotstown were once vying for the title of High Kings of Ulster back in the late ‘seventies and early ‘eighties and, just like their counterparts back then, the Class of 2013, showed tremendous pride, grit and vigour albeit in going down to a seasoned Ballinderry side. It was a case of ‘for whom the Bell tolls’ last Sunday in Clones where Derryman Ryan Bell split the ...

Scotstown 2-16 Clontibret 0-07 BY JOHN GRAHAM SCOTSTOWN may have waited 20 years to regain the senior football championship title but few would have thought that they would have such an easy passage to the title as they enjoyed in Clones on Sunday last against a Clontibret team that just simply failed to function on the day. Scotstown in this year’s championship campaign had beaten the last four championship title winners so they were well poised to strike for victory. The Scotstown line out in the official programme was but a shadow of how the ...

SCOTSTOWN VETERAN MCKENNA HAS HOPES FOR ULSTER

“There was a lot of lads still hurting from losing out in 2011. I think that hurt was still very raw and they didn’t want to lose another county final.” So stated Scotstown true blue Niall McKenna this week as he reflected on his club’s stunning SFC final victory (2-16 to 0-7) last Sunday over Clontibret. McKenna was captain of the Scotstown team that similarily worked the oracle in 1993. Conventional wisdom at that time had it (after also beating the O’Neills) that the Mick Duffy Cup would winter in McKenna’s home ...

SCOTSTOWN SHADE IT AFTER EPIC UNDER-16 CONTEST GOES TO WIRE

SCOTSTOWN 2-13 DONAGHMOYNE 1-15 By JOHN GRAHAM The Packie Boylan Cup will spend the winter in Drumhowan for the third time since 2006 after they deservedly held on to edge out Emyvale in the Universal Graphics Junior Football Championship Final last Sunday. Drumhowan’s win was their fifth in all, taking them level with Cremartin at the top of the roll of honour. Emyvale had lost just three times in 20 games this year prior to last Sunday and they went into the final on the back of rattling in 4-18 against Éire Óg in ...
