Coleraine forward and Slaughtneil man Eoin Bradley was taken to hospital after colliding with the post during his weekend match.

The 33-year-old was taken to Causeway Hospital from the Coleraine showgrounds by ambulance.
He was taken off the pitch to a round of applause from both sets of fans.
Coleraine Football Club later confirmed on Twitter that Bradley "suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung".
