New Antrim chairman Collie Donnelly presented his first piece of silverware to Portglenone winning captain Dermot McAleese after his side's 3-10 to 1-9 win over Rossa in the U21 B Championship final.

McAleese was man of the match and central to everything Portglenone were involved in and will have a huge part to play in Antrim's bid to get out of NFL division four.

In the midfield diamond McAleese was well supported by Peter Duffin and the Delargy brothers - Ronan and Conall.

Speaking to the club's website winning manager Owen Doherty was full of praise for his team. 

 "Our big boys around the middle stood up today, but that’s what we expect from those guys. But it was the never say die attitude of younger, unsung, emerging players like goalkeeper Ryan O'Neill, Conor McGhee, Caolan Tierney, Stephen Kelly, Michael Hagan and John Lewis, as well as others. Our club has plenty to look forward to if we can nurture this talent. They have done us proud again.”

Portglenone: Ryan O'Neill, Conor Mc Ghee, John Lewis, Declan Lennon, Ryan McGirr, Ronan Delargy, Stephen Kelly, Dermot Mc Aleese 0-1, Conall Delargy 1-2, Caolan Tierney, Peter Duffin 0-1,Michael Kelly 0-1, Michael Hagan 1-2, Brian Mc Manus 1-3, Anthony Webb.
