LAST NIGHT AT TRAIGH-A-LOCH, Fanad United and Swilly Rovers shared the spoils.
The 0-0 draw in the Ulster Senior League provided decent enough fare in windy conditions, with the home side shading the chances.
On the Fanad team, playing a full game alongside one another for the first time after a few cameos, were father and son Paddy McGrenaghan and Keelin McElwaine.
