Calry Bohs crowned champions, Coolaney United promoted

Calry Bohs have been crowned Sligo Pallets Premier League champions following a 4-1 victory over St. John’s at Hazlewood on Sunday afternoon.

Sunday afternoon’s result also means that Coolaney United are also promoted.

Before the game, Calry were virtually promoted. St. John’s knew a win or draw would climb them above Coolaney United, who defeated Benbulben 4-2 on Sunday morning and join Calry Bohs in the Super League.

However, Keith Lynch’s side must now turn their attention to a promotion/relegation play-off with Arrow Harps.

Eoin Nicholson put St. John’s ahead on six minutes before Aaron Flynn made it 2-0 just before the interval.

Two became three early in the second half before St. John’s captain Steven Armstrong pulled one back early in the second half.

Aaron Flynn’s brother Michael restored the three-goal margin seventeen minutes from the end to secure the league title for his side.

The result in Hazlewood ensures Coolaney United’s promotion and Super League football in Coolaney for the first time in 27 years next season.

After the game, Calry Bohs forward Eoin Nicholson spoke of his delight to Ocean FM Sport’s Dónal Ryan.
