Crossmaglen Rangers 2-22 Armagh Harps 0-10
Crossmaglen Rangers claimed the T-Met Armagh Senior Club Championship for the 43rd time after destroying Armagh Harps for the 2nd year in a row.
The team lead by John McEntee and Oisin McConville have now won 6 in a row and an incredible 19 titles in 20 years.
It was another clinical performance by the Rangers in a County Final bettering last years destruction of the Harps by 1 score.
