Moran wins battle of veteran managers in Down

Mickey Moran and Pete McGrath.

Two of Gaelic football's most successful managers, Mickey Moran and Pete McGrath, pitted their wits against each other in a Down ACFL Division 1 game in Kilcoo yesterday.

And it was former Derry, Sligo, Donegal, Mayo, Leitrim and Slaughtneil boss Moran who came out on top as his Kilcoo side defeated ex-Down manager McGrath's Rostrevor in a low-scoring affair. Celium Doherty's goal proved decisive as the Magpies prevailed on a 1-5 to 0-6 scoreline.

Rostrevor's cause wasn't helped by the dismissals of Shaun Parr and Conor Doyle, while Aidan Branagan was also sent off for the hosts.

A 1-12 to 2-8 victory over CPN on Saturday ensured Mayobridge remain top of the table.
