Letterkenny Rovers claimed the Sunday League Two title with an emphatic 10-1 success over Glenree Utd at Leckview Park on Sunday afternoon.


Rovers went into the game with their championship fate in their own hands and started fast with goals from captain Ronan Curran on 6 minutes firing them in front before Jack Dwyer doubled the lead on 16 minutes when netting direct from a corner.


Rovers all but sealed the win when making it 3-0 on 31 minutes when the lively Darragh Morrison fired nearly low past Glenree goalkeeper Jake O' Connor.


Rovers then added further goals through Caolan McConnell and Patrick Gahir before Glenree got one back with a fantastic effort from Stephen Doak from his own half straight after Rovers had made it 5-0.


Rovers then made it 6-1 through a neat finish from James Barlow Gallagher  just after the hour mark as the second half became a precursor to title celebrations with Rovers missing a number of good chances to add to their lead before Eddy Moores effort late on  made its way home which  was added to by Patrick Gahir, Jack Dwyer  and Conor O'Donnell as the game ended 10-1.


Rovers deserving title winners on their first season back in the Donegal League ranks.
