Connor (N)

Thu 7th Jul - 7:15pm

The Strollers made it back to back wins from their first two friendlies at the Cliff tonight against a strong and experienced Connor who were showing off quality new signings in Aaron Wilkinson, Mark McKay, Rab Ritchie, Ian Millar and many others.

Philip McBurney's side took the lead through a Wilkinson header following a good free kick but Wakehurst levelled 11 minutes later when Lee McCallion clipped the ball to Armstrong on the left, who beat his man and fired across the box for Logan to equalise at the back post.

The game was turned on it's head as Peter Adams made it 2-1, finishing well with a cooly executed lob over the goalkeeper - Adams then added a second from the penalty spot early in the second half after he was brought down in the box.

U17 players Anthony Shaw (15) and Aaron Campbell (15) both got more minutes under their belts alongside team mate Ronan Lavery (16) who made his Strollers debut tonight. 

Next up for the Strollers in Glentoran U19 on Saturday week.

Starting Team: D. Adams, T. Brady, R. Colville, J. Gordon, C. Allen, (C) M. Logan, L. McCallion, P. Gilchrist, R. Armstrong, B. Cairns, P. Adams.

Subs: A. Shaw, R. Laverty, A. Campbell, G. Owens, J. Connolly
