Ardboe Vs Trillick – 2012 Tyrone GAA Minor Grade 1 Championship Final

Ardboe were crowned the Grade 1 minor champions of Tyrone on Sunday following a 4-07 to 1-11 victory over Trillick in Sunday’s second game in Carrickmore….. a great turn around for the team who were dumped out of the minor championship in August following a dispute regarding extra time during their quarter final tie against Cookstown.

Ardboe last won the minor title in 2008 and a lot of players from that team have made it through to the Tyrone senior and U21 teams and I’m sure that this team will be no different in the future.  Excellent performances from Ardboe’s Michael O’Neill, Michael Cassidy and Michael Lynn to name a few ensured that Ardboe lead from the start of the game. Trillick however never dropped their heads and had some noticeable performances from Daire Gallagher and Lee Brennan.

To the delight of the large number of the Lough shore supporters, Ardboe captain Peter O’Neill lifted the Grade 1 cup and will now lead his team into the Ulster minor series.
