Davitts had a fine 2-14 to 0-8 victory over Shrule-Glencorrib in the South Mayo Junior championship in Ballindine on Saturday evening. Davitts played some very good football in the difficult conditions and led by 0-9 to 0-4 at half time.

Liam Kearns bagged both goals in the second half, the first after a slick attacking move initiated by captain Pat Hopkins and the second a rather fortuitous effort from a free kick. Others to shine for Davitts were Tommy Nolan, JP Kirrane, Michael Ronayne, John Heneghan and Tommy Mitchell.
