Taylor secures a share of the derby spoils for Strabane

A tight tussle, during a tightly contested derby between Strabane and Urney.

DAVID Taylor’s cracking point in the dying minutes of an extremely competitive Tyrone All County League Division Two derby at Páirc Mhic Sioghair, secured a point for Strabane and ensured visitors Urney had to settle for a share of the spoils.

In the end, it was a fair enough outcome but that said either side had chances to win the game late on which were spurned. With just four games remaining both sides are still involved in the relegation battle, as Urney keeper Keith Nelis became his side’s hero, saving Warner Mullen’s penalty after visiting skipper, Fergal McNulty had been penalised for an infringement.

At that stage, it looked as though the visitors would return to Clady triumphant, but with time all but up, substitute Taylor landed the all important final point of proceedings to leave the sides all square.
