Dromore, beaten a week earlier by Ballynahinch at Ravenhill in the final of the Roland Barr U19 Cup, picked themselves up to win the Nutty Krust-Wells Floodlit Cup last night at Chambers Park.
Watched by a big crowd which included Gary Longwell, Isaac Boss, Andrew Trimble and David Pollock as well as Branch President Cecil Watson, the two under-19 teams served up a super game.
Coleraine lock David Chestnut bagged the opening try before Dromore’s Daniel Cummins applied a good finish and the score was 7-7 at the break. Towards the end James Gibson scorched in under the posts to clinch it.
