Millburn welcomed Portstewart Town Blues to the Crescent on Saturday morning.

In an entertaining first half both teams starting very well and playing some great football and it was Millburn who drew first blood a great run down the left from Dylan McCloskey beating two defenders to cut back to Lewis Bradley to stroke the ball home 

The Blues struck back quickly with a nice finish, Bradley then hit the bar up the other end before The Blues struck again to edge forward 1 v 2 

A free kick from Christopher Boreland was headed into by a Portstewart player to draw the game level. Millburn hit the woodwork again with Bradley smashing an effort of the post this time 

The move of the game saw some great work from the Millburn forwards to release Dylan McCloskey his pace took him beyond the defender for him to smash the ball into the goal 3 v 2 

Jamie Connor replaced the injured Curtis Boreland for the second half Millburn started straight on the front foot creating some great chances only denied by the Blues keeper 

Dylan McCloskey always dangerous with his pace again committing defenders and soon he roasted the left back cut into the box only to be brought down penalty Christopher Boreland smashing home from the spot 4 v 2 

The Blues pulled a goal back from a set play before Millburn received a free kick on the edge of the box and Ally Law stepped up skill fully smashing the ball into the top corner to make the score 5 v 3 

Millburn FC would like to thank The Clyde Tavern Bar and Millburn Community Association for sponsoring the Club for this season.
