United book their place in last four thumbnailLee Harkin came on as a subí as Limavady Utd battled past a brave Trojans side in the Craig Memorial North West Cup at the weekend.

THEY were made to work harder than many expected but, ultimately, class told and the holders saw off their spirited hosts, although they had to come from behind twice in this postponed Craig Memorial Cup tie to book their semi-final spot.
At Oakland Park, Trojans were quick out of the blocks and, on nine minutes, had the first chance as burly Darren McFadden shrugged of his marker and fired across goal but wide. Seven minutes later, ex-Roesider Thomas Burke needed to be alert to block Hume's curling free kick with a diving header.
The opening goal came in the 18th minute as an uncharacteristically flustered McClelland clipped an attacker just inside the box and was immediately penalised for the foul. Darren McCready made no mistake from the spot, beating Wells with precision.
Five minutes later it was all square as Brian McClean was penalised for hauling Robbie Hume down as the diminutive striker wriggled free of his marker. Amid home side protests, Hume was the calmest man on the field as he slotted his penalty home.
The goals kept coming and four minutes later ex-Institute frontman McFadden restored Trojans' lead, being allowed far too much space to collect the ball and shoot low across Wells and into the bottom right hand corner of the net.
