It really was a great day for Ferns yesterday, as the minor footballers took the Roinn 2 county title last night, to follow on from the victory in the U-12 Hurling Shield Final earlier in the day.
St Anne's were the opponents in St Patrick's Park last night, and what started out looking like a cakewalk turned into a real battle the longer it went on. Ferns were by far the dominant force in the first half and led by 0-11 to 1-3 at the break, but the Rathangan side turned things around afterwards - so much so, that Ferns were really clinging on in the end.
Happily, they did manage to hold out, as they secured a win by 0-13 to 1-9.
Well done to all the players, to team managers Nick Stafford and George Warren, and to everybody else involved with the side.
