TWO LOCAL ENNISKILLEN rugby stars played their part in the recent successful interprovincial campaign for Junior Ulster.

Both Jamie Johnston and Alan Wilkinson were part of the squad which finished second in the competition after defeating Connacht 62-6, losing narrowly to Munster 10-9 and then concluding their campaign on Saturday with a 21-21 draw against eventual winners Leinster.


Jamie played all three games scoring tries in the Connacht and Leinster matches while Alan came on to play a key role in the final game.

Also involved in the squad were former Enniskillen players and local men James Carleton (Portadown Rfc), Gareth McCoy (Portadown Rfc), Ashley Finlay (Cooke Rfc) and Richie Finlay (Cooke Rfc). The latter unfortunately got injured in a warm-up game before the tournament began.

Overall it was a promising campaign for Ulster, whose points difference of +55 over the three games highlighted the potential within the ranks.
