Jake Donnelly re confirmed claims he was the transfer of the last window by firing Crumlin United to within a point of top spot on Friday night.
The attacker, who was signed without much furore from Ayrfield, has fast become key to the Crumlin revival and played a vital role as they put themselves firmly in title contention with victory over Drumcondra.
