Jason Quigley scored two points on his competitive debut for Sean MacCumhaills reserves on Saturday night.

The Ballybofey boxer has taken to the Gaelic football pitch in recent weeks since recovering from a broken jaw.

Quigley ended a 15-year exile from the pitch as lined out alongside Paul Kelly on Saturday as MacCumhaills defeated Milford 2-20 to 0-11.

Quigley arched over a neat point late in the first half with the Finnsiders leading 0-10 to 0-7.

Paddy Hannigan netted two second-half goals to take MacCumhaills out of reach and Quigley tacked on a neat point after a well-worked move during a late flurry.

In November, Quigley faced Demetrius Andrade for the WBO world middleweight title in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Quigley suffered a broken jaw when losing via a second round stoppage, but the 30-year-old’s injury has now healed.

Hannigan hit 2-6 with Brian Patton (0-4), Ryan Duffy (0-3) and Rory Mulligan contributing multiple points alongside Quigley with Dougie McDaid, Darren McGowan and Kelly also weighing in with scores.
