Shane McGinty hits first Ballymena goal to give Sky Blues win at Ards

0

Shane McGinty opened his account for Ballymena United in spectacular fashion this afternoon.

The Sky Blues came from a goal down to defeat Ards 2-1 at Clandeboyne Park.

An early goal from Mark Kelly had Ards ahead, but Ballymena came good in the second half and James Knowles cracked in a fine equaliser on 56 minutes.

St Johnston man McGinty, a summer recruit from Ballinamallard United, was sent on by David Jeffrey in the 70th minute and he wasted no time in announcing his arrival.

Taking a pull-back from Ryan Mayse, McGinty brilliantly beat Sam Johnston for his first goal for Ballymena, who have taken seven points from a possible nine.
