Up and running: Rangers’ Billy Gilmour scores against Co Armagh at Coleraine Showgrounds

Rangers left it very late but they shattered Co Armagh hearts with a stoppage time winner at the Super Cup NI youth tournament last night.

The Gers are up and running in the Junior Section after Adedapo Awokoya-Mebude had the final say in the 2-1 victory at the Coleraine Showgrounds.

Billy Gilmour struck first for the Scottish club before Chris Hutchinson equalised but Awokoya-Mebude ensured a winning start for the Ibrox starlets.

Ghanaian academy team Right to Dream began the defence of their Junior title with a 4-0 win.

Two goals in each half earned the victory over GPS FC Bayern from the United States.

In the Premier Section counties Antrim, Armagh and Down all recorded impressive wins.

Armagh stole the show at Clough, hammering Columbian side Alset 8-0, with Lurcan Forde hitting a hat-trick.
