Jimmy Dunne celebrates Accrington's promotion last night.
Blackrock native Jimmy Dunne helped Accrington Stanley to secure promotion from League Two for the first time last night.
Stanley defeated Yeovil Town 2-0 at home to gain a place in the third tier for next season, while they're now odds-on to land the league title as they sit four points clear of second place Luton Town with a game in hand.
The centre-half, who made his Irish U21 debut against Iceland last month, is currently on-loan from Burnley having spent the first half of the season at non-league Barrow.
However, since moving to John Coleman's side, the 20-year-old has established himself in the side, reaching double-figures in appearance terms, as Accy went on a run of losing only once in their last 19 encounters.
