Barry Grogan leads the way for Tipperary against Leitrim

Peter Creedon’s men next visit Offaly for winner take all promotion clash


Peter Creedon’s Tipperary scored their fourth successive victory in the league with a seven-point win at a bitterly cold Semple Stadium yesterday.

Sunday week, Tipp travel to Offaly for what could be a winner-takes-all promotion clash.

Barry Grogan led the way in the scoring stakes for Tipp yesterday as the Aherlow hitman bagged 2-3 .

Grogan’s first-half brace helped Tipp to lead by 2-10 to 0-4 at the break and the game was effectively over.

Leitrim salvaged some pride by outscoring the hosts by 0-10 to 0-5 after half-time but this was a disappointing display, as their own promotion hopes disappear.

Creedon said: "We played some brilliant football in the first half. The second half petered out – we were sloppy."
