Long time leaders Quay Celtic finally claimed the U15 Premier Division title in the last league fixture of the 2013/2014 season played in Bellew Park on Tuesday evening.

Both teams had finished their league campaign on 49 points each so a play-off final had to be arranged to decide the winners of the league, with the game going to penalties.

Glenmuir went in front after six minutes when Quay centre half Conor McGailey handled inside the box and although Garion O’Hare produced a superb save from Chad McEneaney’s spot kick he could do nothing to prevent McEneaney forcing home the rebound.

The sides were level on 22 minutes when Sean O’Hanlon’s diagonal pass sent Shane Byrne in behind the Glenmuir defence and he slotted past a stranded Mark Byrne.

In the end it called for penalties and Quay Celtic ‘keeper Garion O’Hare was the hero when he dived full length to save Glenmuir’s last spot kick for victory.

GLENMUIR: Mark Byrne, Emmanuel Keenan, Aaron Matthews, Ciaran McShane, Edgar Bitanis, Chad McEneaney, Dean Connolly, Azeez Ogunfowora, Caolan Dines, Gavin Matthews, Peter McElroy, Amara Ibeh, Mubarak Adewunmi, Conor Nicholson, Michael Somers.

Quay Celtic: Garion O’Hare, Tiernan Reilly, Caolan Conroy, Gavin Smith, Conor McGailey, Lee Kavanagh, James Prendergast, Andrew Curley, Ciaran Jamison, Sean O’Hanlon, Shane Byrne, Fergal Mulholland, Luke Hazzard.
