Enniskillen Rangers retain the Mercer League Trophy
May 07, 2019
Last night following a 2-2 draw with their nearest challengers Tummery Athletic, Enniskillen Rangers were crowned Division 1 Champions for the 2018-19 Fermanagh and Western Football League Season, retaining the Mercer League Trophy which they won in dramatic fashion last season.
Over the course of this season Rangers have consistently been the best side and are now only one game away from going the season unbeaten. Last night's opponents and runners up in Division 1, Tummery Athletic are also on course for an unbeaten season, showing their quality and dominance over the rest of the Division and have the Mulhern Cup final on Friday night to look forward to.
Last summer after winning the League and Junior Cup double Michael Kerr set about strengthening his squad, bringing in several new faces in an attempt to fresh things up. In addition the return of James Turley to full fitness, provided extra creativity to an already dangerous Rangers attack. The front four of Cutler, Keenan, Turley and Currie all had great seasons scoring some important goals in key matches.
After last night's match Neill Jardine Chairman of the Fermanagh and Western Football League presented the Mercer League to captain William Burleigh.
