‘TIMES’ VIDEO: Murray knocks out hometown club with Warrenpoint penalty against Ports

Warrenpoint Town pulled off a League Cup shock last night (Wednesday) by recovering from a first-half deficit to defeat Portadown on a 2-1 scoreline.

Portadown-born Stephen Murray converted the match-winning penalty kick for Warrenpoint and took time from the post-match celebrations to discuss his town roots and early days of Mid-Ulster football with St Mary’s.
