Brian Proctor netted the only goal of the game yesterday as Arranmore United defeated Strand Rovers in the Voodoo Venue Cup final at An Screaban.
17-year-old Proctor headed home at the midway point of the first half and the goal proved enough to give Jerry Early’s team a 1-0 win.
It was a big day for the Islanders. This year the club is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a Donegal League club and yesterday’s Cup final triumph was the 10th trophy they’ve taken back on the ferry.
“We are still the same club with the same ethos and have despite crippling losses we are still in existence and thriving,” Early said this morning on Facebook.[adrotate group=”91″]
“In many ways, the club is like our pipe band; it’s part of who we are and the sheer pride of the people in this community won’t let our treasures go.
“In the 30 years of existence our club have at least 25 times every year gone out and represented our Island with dignity and pride.
“Many, many times this happened with the majority of the team being from the mainland, but these same lads are and always will be part of us. Maybe up to 70 players from the Tir mór down the years have donned the jersey and I have never ever heard anyone of them say a bad word about us.”
