FORMER ALL-IRELAND club football champions Crossmolina are heading to Mayo intermediate ranks after losing today’s relegation final to Davitts by 0-17 to 1-13.

Crossmolina won the All-Ireland in 2001 and also reached the final in 2003. The three-time Connacht winners delivered five Mayo titles between 1999 and 2006, but now drop out of senior ranks.

A Stephen Duffy goal left them with a 1-8 to 0-6 half-time lead, but Davitts rallied in the second period.

With the teams deadlocked in stoppage-time, former Mayo forward Mickey Conroy arrived off the bench to fist the winner for hus club to retain their senior status for next season.

Elsewhere in club football action today, Athy booked their place in the Kildare SFC final with a 0-17 to 1-13 win over Celbridge. They’ll play the winners of tomorrow’s clash between Naas and Moorefield.
