It’s that time of year once again where we reflect on our clubs achievements in the past 12 months and reward those individuals who have shone through in all different aspects of the each team. All awards are voted on by club members (players, coaches & associate members) so each winner will be decided by their peers.
The Craigavon Cowboys returned to Portadown with the IAFL 1 Bowl in hand on Sunday past, following a dramatic 28-27 win over the Westmeath Minotaurs. The weather was perfect for football as was the pitch at Navan RFC. The game started with both teams showing nerves as the first quarter ended scoreless before the game came to life in the second quarter.
