Pre-Season Friendly – Portadown 1 Warrenpoint 2
Warrenpoint were the visitors to Shamrock Park tonight in what was a very entertaining and competitive fixture. The Point included a number of ex-Portadown stars in their ranks including Darren Murray, Matty Parker, Jordan Lyttle and Sean Mackle, plus manager Matty Tipton and goal keeping coach David Miskelly.
Stephen Murray opened the scoring for the Point with a close range header after Luke Wilson and Kevin Amuneke both missed opportunities to score for the Ports. Chris Lavery did equalise fr the Ports with his second goal in 2 matches before Martin Murray scored a speculative free kick from 25 yards which McGaughey could do nothing about. The Ports were unlucky not to take a draw from the match as they hit the crossbar in the dying minutes through a Jackson Holmes drive from 20 yards.
