St Barnabas have become the first American team made up of homegrown players to win the New York senior football championship.

The club beat fellow New York Championship club Sligo in a replay that went to extra-time on Sunday by a score of 4-19 to 4-15.

Barnabas had to stage a late comeback, with two extra-time goals from Tiarnan Mathers helping them to claw back the deficit and hold on for victory.

Ahead of the replay after last weekend's drawn game, St Barnabas captain Conor Hogan and New York GAA secretary Liam Birmingham had joined RTÉ 2fm's Game On to discuss the development of St Barnabas and their homegrown contingent.

"From our point of view, it was a validation of everything that's been happening over the last number of years with the kids that have been coming up through the minor board and now to see them playing at that level was a tremendous accomplishment," Birmingham said.

Their day has come.
