Eurotech Junior Football League Cup Final
Cremartin 3-11 Clones 0-9 4/11/18
Cremartin finished 2018 with silverware and promotion when they cruised to a comfortable win over Clones in the JFL Final at Gavan Duffy Park on November 4. Cremartin banished memories of their JFC decider defeat against Emyvale by all but securing victory in the first half here, via goals from Barry Kerr, David Hanley and Ryan McVicar. Hanley finished with 1-8 for a dominant Cremartin side who also had big performances from the likes of Kerr, Kevin Nolan, Ronan Burke and the returning Johnny McGuigan as they took advantage of some good fortune in front of goals to ease to victory.
