History boys: Crues are hungry for even more success

By Graham Luney

Paul Heatley fired Crusaders to a historic league title double and then set his sights on bettering their remarkable success.

A 3-1 win over Cliftonville secured a second successive title triumph for the Crues - the first time they have retained the Gibson Cup - and the flying winger now wants more.

An Irish Cup semi-final defeat to Glenavon meant a third successive last four loss for the Shore Road men and already Heatley is intent on putting that right.

"As a club we set our standards high - they are hard to meet, but we have managed to do it this year," said Heatley, who scored twice at Solitude.

"We were a little bit disappointed with the Irish Cup, but it sets us a good target for next season and maybe go and do the double and enjoy Europe again in the summer and create more history for the club."
