Dicksboro have been crowned Leinster Champions after a thrilling victory over St Vincents at Netwatch Cullen Park yesterday. Vincents went into the game as reigning champions but Dicksboro didnt let that phase them. Level at the break at 0-5 each it was a bruising first half with little been given as both sets of backs were immense.
Vincents got a goal and a point within five minutes of the restart but Dicksboro never panicked and kept chipping away at that lead and got seven points in a row to leave them in the lead and a lead that they wouldnt relenquish. For the first time in their history they had won the AIB Leinster senior club final 0-12 to 1-7, Amy clifford picked up the player of the match award after the game before her sister Jenny was presented with the cup. Dicksboro will now progress to the All-Ireland semi-final on December 2nd.
