Former Louth and Westmeath manager Colin Kelly hit the only goal in Sunday's Louth Junior "B Championship final.

At the tender age of 48, the Wee County's all-time leading scorer netted near the end at Stabannon as Dreadnots recorded a 1-13 to 0-12 victory over Naomh Mairtin.

Seven years after retiring from club football, Kelly was persuaded to pull on the jersey again earlier in the year as the Clogherhead club were low on numbers for their semi-final clash. Not surprisingly, his services were called upon again for the final.

Sunday's victory comes a full 31 years after a then 17-year-old Kelly claimed his first Louth SFC medal with his old club, Newtown Blues, in 1988.
