LISTEN: Ryan praises Janesboro players following third league title

Janesboro Football Club were crowned PJ Matthews Premier League champions on Tuesday evening following a 0-2 away victory over Ballynanty Rovers at Limerick Institute of Technology.

A superb free kick from captain Shane Clarke followed by a well worked Adrian Power goal was enough to see the ‘Boro through in a routine victory.

The southside club finished just one point ahead of arch rivals Pike Rovers who defeated Aisling Annacotty 2-1 and the Hoops went the whole season unbeaten.

It was the second trophy in three days for the club as they won the Oscar Traynor Trophy while representing Limerick District League on Sunday following a tough tournament which saw the club overcome Inishowen and Leinster Senior League along the way.

Joint mananger Aidan Ryan, who works alongside Shane O’Hanlon, was ecstatic at the final whistle on Tuesday.

It’s down to the players. They have worked so hard. We have been very consistent in the league and you are judged over 22 matches. We are absolutely delighted as it’s three leagues in three years.

We have only suffered 5 defeats in 66 games and it’s phenomenal what the players have done.

Aidan also speaks about the journey to the title as well as the character shown by the players to bounce back from early season setbacks.
