YMCA claimed Division 6 on Wednesday night with a hard fought 1-0 win against Newbridge II, taking their fourth consecutive league title with two games to spare.
As a result, the club remains on course for a third successive treble following last year’s Irish Hockey Challenge, league and cup success as they face Clontarf on April 10 in the division 5/6 decider.
