Soccer – Glenea Utd Crowned Premier Division Champions

Glenea United won the Premier Division of the Donegal League for the first time since 2004 on Sunday. In the league play off at the Diamond Park in Ballyare United beat their rivals and defending champions Gweedore Celtic on penalties to take the title.

Glenea struck first in the 17th minute to go in front with a Darren McKeever strike. Twelve minutes into the second half, Gweedore leveled the match thanks to a David Ward wind assisted corner. Neither side could muster up a winner in extra time so the dreaded spot kicks were required.

18 year old keeper Shaun McClafferty was the hero for Glenea saving two penalties as they ended their eight-year wait for Donegal League glory.
