For the second time in two weeks Aiden McAnespies senior footballers were involved in a superb game of football, this time against the current championship holders, Christopher’s. The end result was slightly better for the northerners, a draw earned thanks to a cool CJ McGourty long range free that sailed over the bar to level the game with hardly any time left on the clock. There was never more than four points separating the sides at any point during the game, but Christopher’s looked to have done enough to win before McGourty stepped in to save a point for the Macs.
