Kerr really showed his managerial chops as he plotted Enniskillen Rangers path to Junior Cup glory. Wins over Rosemount Rec, Lower Shankill and Newry Celtic booked Rangers a place in the IFA Junior Cup decider where they put Hill Street to the sword in a swashbuckling 5-1 final rout.
It has been another year crammed with success for the Erne Boxing Club with young stars like Kaci Crowley, Joanna Czerwinska Mark Kells, Harris Crowley, Dylan McMahon, Mark Monahan, Cameron Suttle, Thomas McDonagh and Caoilfhionn Crowley all picking up high level silverware.
It was another big year for Aghadrumsee’s Tom Mohan. Appointed as manager of the Republic of Ireland’s u19 squad, last October he oversaw wins over Serbia and Cyprus and draw with Azerbaijan to secure his sides passage into the UEFA elite round in Portugal this coming March.
