Aghyaran defeated their local neighbours Urney in the final of the Division One/Two promotion playoff 4-8 to 1-8 at Sigerson Park Strabane on Saturday to secure a return to senior football for season 2018.

Having exited the championship in disappointing manner the St Davogs were determined to make the most of this opportunity. With Ronan Mc Hugh in superb recent form Aghyaran went into this game as slight favourites. However Urney showed in flashes last week against Strabane that they were well capable of putting in a display when most needed.

An early goal from Ronan Mc Hugh got Peter Mc Ginnity’s side off to a strong start. Points from Mc Hugh (3), Benny Gallen, Tiernan Mc Sorley and Michael Anderson plus a second Mc Hugh goal put Aghyaran in pole position before the break. Johnny Lafferty, Jamie Mc Aleer and Fergal Mc Nulty were among the points as Urney reached the break 2-6 to 0-6 in arrears.

The second half saw Mc Hugh complete his hat trick while Gary Leonard hit goal number four for the winners. Ronan Mc Namee also landed a brace of points as Aghyaran eased to the win. All a disappointing Urney side had to show for their efforts in the second half were points from James Kelly and Jamie Mc Aleer while a late goal from the boot of Sean Mc Gowan merely put a gloss on the score line.
