Kilbarrack Utd have just missed out on promotion from the LSL Senior 1B. Chris McDonnell’s side came oh-so-close, but fell at the final hurdle in their quest for promotion.

An away defeat to fellow promotion chasers Willow Park saw Kilbarrack’s chances of moving up to the third tier of Intermediate football scuppered for the time being.

They say the table does not lie and while Kilbarrack boasted the meanest defence in the division, conceding just 24 goals all season, a lack of goals up the other end, and dropped points in games where we would have hoped to take the full quota means we will be plying our trade in the LSL Senior 1B again next season.

In a season blighted by injuries to key senior players, Kilbarrack can be proud of their efforts this season, and will be hoping for better luck in the injury department for the 2019-2020 season.
