Late goals dump out Dergview. thumbnail Action from Dergview’s 3-0 Irish Cup defeat to Larne.

LATE goals helped Larne seal a 3-0 win over Dergview at Inver Park in the fifth round of the Tennat's Irish Cup.


Two goals came courtesy of in-form Darren Stuart, who was named the NI Football Writers Championship Player of the Month for December.

Big-spending Larne have been splashing the cash recently, and Stuart began the game up front alongside debutant David McDaid. Chris Ramsey and Marty Donnelly also made their bow for the Invermen.

Richard Clarke's new signing Alex Pomeroy started for his first game for the Derg beside Ryan Campball in the forward line.

Dergview though proved hard to break down and the hosts had to wait until the final 20 minutes to break the deadlock as Stuart latched onto a short backpass to round Stefan McCusker and slot home.

Donnelly showed his class two minutes later to lay on the second goal for Ralph Kottoy before Stuart rounded off the scoring in the 90th minute, captialising on a mix-up between Graeme Taylor and McCusker to steal in and tap the ball home into an empty net.

With the Irish Cup now out of the way, attention turns back to the league as the Derg travel away to Newry this Friday night.
