St Georges win unprecedented 3rd Grand Slam
22nd May, 2017
St George's have clinched Manx football's Grand Slam for an unprecedented third time following their 2-0 win over Peel in the Craig Heartstrong Foundation Hospital Cup final at the Bowl on Sunday.
Geordies had already won the Canada Life Premier League, the Paddy Power FA Cup and the Cu-Plas Railway Cup, and were favourites to complete another clean sweep of trophies for the third time in only five years.
A good start saw the Geordies go ahead with a 13 minute goal from Ciaran McNulty but the remainder of the first half saw little change with both sides coming close to the net.
The second half saw several stoppages and substitutions and as the full time whistle approached, Geordies Jack Mc Vey set up the ball to sub Calum Morrisey who headed the ball home in the 86th Minute to seal the victory and the all important historic third Grand Slam.
Manx Independent Carriers are pleased to have been the main sponsor of St Georges for the last 10 years.
St Georges have won six of the last seven Hospital Cups, achieved seven straight Railway Cup wins, four of the last six FA Cups and won twelve of the last 14 Premier League titles
