Super Seconds win the Steel & Sons Cup

Tue, 25/12/2012 - 15:01

Glentoran Seconds defeated Ards 3-0 at Seaview this morning to lift the Steel & Sons Cup for the 14th time. The Seconds went in front just before halftime when Steven McCullough's cross-shot was headed home by Richard Gibson. Ards made 3 changes during the second period as they went in search of an equaliser but with 6 minutes remaining a long clearance out of defence was picked up by Carl McComb. McComb cut inside and played a one-two with Daniel Burns before finding Stephen Gordon who drilled the ball home from the edge of the area. On 88 minutes a left wing corner from Samuel McIlveen was headed home by Gibson at the back post to put the icing on the cake.

Congratulations to Spike Hill, his staff and the team.
