Linfield Swifts midfielder Jonny Frazer scored a sensational second-half hat-trick to break the hearts of Crumlin Star and send the young Blues into their first Steel & Sons Cup final in 19 years.

Crumlin led 2-0 at the interval but Frazer stunned the Amateur League outfit and became an instant Linfield hero - scoring the winning goal from the penalty spot in the third minute of injury-time.

Swifts boss Alan Dornan said: "I'm incredibly proud of the boys. Their second-half performance was incredible. It would have been easy to give up at 2-0 considering their youth, but they showed great resilience as well as ability."

The Swifts will meet Dundela in the Christmas Eve final - a rerun of the 1997 decider, which the Blues won 1-0 thanks to an Andy McLean goal.
