CULLEN RETAIN DUCON CUP

Cullen 1-18, Knocknagree 0-8

Cullen completed back to back Ducon Cup titles on overcoming a disappointing  Knocknagree in the Kiskeam staging. Victory was no more than Cullen deserved, putting together a  marvellous brand of football matched by hard work and rugged doggedness to thwart their near neighbours.

On this occasion, Knocknagree performed well below par and the concession of nine consecutive points in the opening half when operating against the breeze left the challengers with a mountain to climb as Cullen eased to victory.
