On a great evening at dry Arch park there was a fantastic football match played by Local supporters of both Manchester United and Liverpool to raise money for a great charity – the Crumlin Hospital cardiac unit.
Liverpool supporters reckon it will be 4-1 to them when the real sides meet next month in the EPL!
The teams were led out by ref Paul Doherty and his brothers as officials and the little mascots Bailey Cody and Cory.
When the match got underway it was a cracker, in the surprisingly hot temperatures there was great football been played by both teams, United went in at half time 2-1 with a double from Bonagee United’s Greg Magee followed by Anthony Doherty pulling 1 back before the break – three great goals you would see on a Saturday night on Match of the Day!
The sun had gone down a bit when the 2nd half kicked off but the game was still played at a good pace, United took a 3-1 lead with a great leap from Lagan’s Declan Sweeney with a delightful cross from Stephen Mc Connell from the left.
