Tandragee Rovers player/manager Scott Walker enjoyed an on-the-field impact on Saturday with a goal and assist in success over Camlough Rovers.

The Intermediate League lift arrived for Rovers thanks to Walker as the former Irish League favourite made his mark on the road.

Rovers held the upper hand across possession but struggled to carve out clear sights of goal.

Chris Mackle offered a constant outlet along the left flank, with Camlough keen to post a threat on the counter-attack.

A defensive lapse left Rovers on the backfoot despite the attempts of Colin Bingham on the Tandragee line.

However, it was level entering the interval thanks to Walker’s long-range strike that nestled inside the upright.

Rovers had a penalty appeal dismissed before Walker delivered for Gareth Dobbs to head Tandragee into a 2-1 advantage.

AJ Gallagher came close to diverting home Johnny Black’s late shot.

Resolute defensive work helped Rovers protect the slender advantage until the final whistle.
