Ballyclare Comrades grabbed their first league win of the season on Saturday as Daniel Smith’s late goal sank Limavady United at Dixon Park.

The visitors took the lead through Ryan Mullan inside nine minutes, but Chris Trussell was on hand to level for the Comrades.

Winger Andy Simms gave Eddie Hill’s men the edge when he found the net just before the interval.

Ryan Mullan looked to have spoiled the party with an equaliser six minutes from time, before Smith netted the late winner.
