Salthill get the first part right


Cobh Ramblers 0 Salthill Devon 1:SALTHILL DEVON took a giant step towards securing their First Division status for next season at St Colman’s Park last night, thanks to a 35th-minute goal from Mikey Gilmore.

Daryl Horgan’s cross from the right found Gilmore unmarked, and he drilled the ball home with a left-footed volley.

Salthill will now take that one-goal advantage into Saturday evening’s second leg at their Galway base.
