Glentoran have won the Sadler's Peaky Blinder Irish Cup.

They beat Ballymena 2-1 in the final at Windsor Park on Friday night.

Robbie McDaid hit the winner five minutes from the end of extra-time.

Paul O'Neill had put the Glens in front mid-way through the first half of normal time, but Cathair Friel equalised for the Sky Blues just after the interval.

Then McDaid continued his goalscoring heroics in the cup with the all-important winner that clinched the famous old trophy and a lucrative place in Europa League qualifying. 

It was first football match in the UK to have fans in attendance since the coronavirus pandemic.

There was a crowd of 500 - 250 from each club, at opposite ends of the pitch.

We were there to capture the unique occasion and speak with the key players:
