Who said long ball football was a thing of the past?
Well whoever it was, get them down to Glentoran.
It looked like a free-kick would just be launched forward for a flick on but, to everyone’s surprise, goalkeeper Elliott Morris found the back of the net.
⚽ @Glentoran take the lead through… GOALKEEPER ELLIOT MORRIS!!!

The breathtaking strike gave Glentoran a half-time lead against Insitute. The club are looking for their first win in 13 games.
What a way this would be to end the run.
