Rising star defender Conor Bradley has become the first person from here to play in Europe for Liverpool.

The 18-year-old Northern Ireland international from Castlederg in County Tyrone came off the bench in Tuesday night's Champions League clash with AC Milan.

Liverpool had a 2-1 victory at the San Siro stadium, ensuring they became the first English team to win all six of their Champions League group stage matches.

Locally, Linfield will meet Larne in the County Antrim Shield final.

The East Antrim side thrashed Championship neighbours Ballyclare Comrades 8-0.

The Blues beat Cliftonville 2-1 on penalties after the semi-final at Solitude ended 1-1.

There was controversy in the shoot-out with Reds skipper Chris Curran scoring from the spot, only for his effort to be ruled out, apparently for a double contact when he struck the ball. 

It looked like the Reds had secured victory, before a dramatic twist in added time. 

The scheduled league fixture between Dungannon and Warrenpoint was postponed after a second pitch inspection.

No match at Stangmore, but former Swifts player Conor Bradley did get a game - for Liverpool
