First silverware of the year collected by National Automation Limited Minors who won the Division 3 league by defeating Kilbride in Tulsk on Friday evening. They had won the semi-final earlier in the week when they travelled to Ballyforan and overcame a strong St Aidan’s. Their league win means that they are promoted to Division 2 for championship purposes. They have a bye in the first round of the championship, which means that they won’t see championship action until late June. Congratulations to the boys and the management team.
