McCrea praises Coagh

DUP Mid Ulster MLA Cllr Ian McCrea congratulated Coagh United on clinching promotion to the Belfast Telegraph Championship Division 1 over the weekend with a 3-1 away win over Ballyclare Comrades.

Speaking on Tuesday Mr McCrea said :“I am absolutely delighted that Coagh have secured their place in Championship Division 1 and I would like to congratulate the players and coaching staff that have put in a long hard season to ensure that promotion was achieved.

I have been an avid Coagh fan for many years and I personally am thrilled to see the club go from strength to strength and to settle the matter of promotion with a 3-1 away win shows the quality in the squad.

I wish the team every success in Division 1 and trust that they can carry on building on this latest success

Coagh Swifts also deserve congratulations following their tremendous success in winning the Wilmor Johnston Memorial Cup last month by beating Newry City Reserves 3-1 in the Final at Armagh City’s Holm Park.”
