The champagne was flowing in Magheraveely on Saturday evening as they clinched the division three league title in style with a 7-0 drubbing away to Fivemiletown United Seconds.

With promotion already secured a few weeks ago it was just a question of when the silverware would follow and after a superb campaign nobody can deny that they aren’t worthy champions.

With the finishing line in sight it was understandable that the visitors were nervous and they struggled to get their fluent game going in the opening quarter of an hour.

With twenty minutes gone though they made the breakthrough and they never looked back after that. Good approach play from Warren Stewart down the right wing saw him send in a cross which Malcolm Little got on the end of and when his shot was stopped on the line Joseph Williamson reacted first to score from the rebound from six yards out.

Two minutes later they doubled their advantage when a good ball over the top from Jamie Treacy released Little and he ran through to slot home. Straight from the centre Williamson won back possession in the middle of the field and he played the ball to Stewart who fired past the home keeper from thirty yards out to end the game as a contest.

The one way traffic continued in the second half as within five minutes they had made it 4-0 with Williamson blasting home a free from the edge of the box after he had been fouled himself. On the hour mark the new champions scored again when Paul Elliot’s shot was blocked and the ball spun up in the air and Stewart got his head to it and while it came back of the post he was there again to score despite lying on the ground.

Fivemiletown United Seconds were offering nothing of a threat up front and it was only a matter of what the winning scoreline would be. Little made it six with a neat finish to the bottom left hand corner of the net after a mazy run had taken him past three defenders before Little completed the rout after the home keeper had spilled a shot from Stewart.

“It was a nice way to win the league as we probably produced our best display of the season. It is a great achievement for everybody connected with the club from the players and backroom staff to the local community who have given us such great support this past three years. Hopefully we can build on this success in division two next season” – Magheraveely’s Rodney McVitty
