Cobh Wanderers eventually secured the final promotion Munster Senior League Senior first division promotion slot with victory over Everton Afc in Cork on Saturday.
Midleton, Everton and Wanderers couldn’t be separated in the race for second spot in the second tier. All three clubs ended up on 36 points so the MSL had to enter a three way play off.
Cobh and Midleton meet first and Wanderers came away victorious. Midleton then beat Everton meaning anything but a three goal win for Everton on Saturday would have ensured promotion for Cobh.
Everton went and won the game by a 2-0 scoreline, but it wasn’t enough to deny Cobh promotions, who ironically in a league that don’t take goal difference into account go up on goal difference via the play offs.
