Fermanagh and Western League round-up January 4

Defending champions Enniskillen Town United continue to lead the way at the top of the Fermanagh and Western Division one table following the opening round of fixtures in the New Year.

They defeated Tummery Athletic 2-0 away from home with Frank Wallace and Conor Tummon getting their goals.

With Beragh Swifts and Lisnaskea Rovers both not in action, Lisbellaw United took full advantage to move up to second place, although it took an own goal to decide a tight contest with Killen Rangers.

Strathroy Harps are another side who are well in title contention after easing to a 4-0 win at home to struggling Dergview Reserves, with Tony Quinn hitting a brace and Poggy Nugent and Aidy McCaffrey also on target.

Division 2 leaders NFC Kesh had a 2-0 win away to Drumquin United thanks to goals from Lee Walker and Jamie Middlemass, but St Patrick’s remain on their heels after winning 3-1 at Strule United, Tommy Murphy with the hosts’ goal.

In the only other game played in this division, goals from Eamon McCaffrey, Glen Mowat and John Elliot saw Maguiresbridge claim a fine 3-1 victory at home to Lisnarick, Niall Gormley with a consolation strike for the visitors.

There were plenty of goals scored in the five games that were played in Division 3.

Erne Rovers defeated Dunbreen Rovers 5-3 thanks to goals from Alan Gregg (2), Ronan Cox, Seamus Ryder and Jason Love, while Magheraveely defeated Ardstraw Reserves 3-1.

Enniskillen Athletic travelled to Mountjoy United Reserves and came away with a 5-2 win with Curry (3), McCusker and Simpson their marksmen.

Goals from Mick McCullagh (2), Mickey Coyle, Niall McFadden and Ryan McCartan saw Omagh Hospitals win by the same scoreline against Augher Stars, Christopher Morris with both goals for the visitors.

The performance of the day, though, goes to Orchard Farm who won 8-2 away to Fivemiletown United Seconds with the help of goals from Niall Bradley (3), Craig Boyd, Tony Glen, James Cooke, Stevie Stafford and Scott Armstrong.
