Crossmaglen Rangers are Ulster club champions for an 11th time after an extra-time victory over Scotstown.
The win puts Crossmaglen into the semi-finals of the All-Ireland club competition in which they will play Castlebar who recently beat Corofin in the Connacht final.
Crossmaglen joint-manager Oisin McConville said after the game “It was an unbelievable battle but we got there in the end and that is the important thing.
“We let our guard slip for a spell in the second half which was not good, but there is a lot of fight in our team. We used every single one of our men.
“We play Castlebar in the All-Ireland now. I watched them last week and they are a phenomenal side, but we have a couple of months to prepare for that.”
Congratulations to Crossmaglen on another superb victory and we wish them best in the All-Ireland Series.
