Andy Hall is a striker's dream, reckons Glenavon's new star forward

By Gareth Hanna

Playing alongside Andy Hall for just a couple of months is enough for a striker to be flabbergasted at his ability to provide.

Asking Glenavon's new goal-scoring supremo Andrew Mitchell what he makes of his team-mate, the answer is written on the smile that comes to his face.

"Absolutely fantastic," says Mitchell after Saturday's 3-1 win over Cliftonville, seemingly struggling to work out just how to portray what it's like to play with the winger.

"He fully deserves his man of the match. He puts the ball right where you want it as a striker. He's come up with a goal again himelf as well and is fully deserving of his award. Hopefully in the next few weeks he can continue to do that."

It's little wonder Mitchell is so taken by the former Bangor man. He bagged the assists for two of Glenavon's three goals on Saturday afternoon, his cross for Mark Griffin to finish the third a particularly impressive curling cross.

Andy Hall earned MOTM with two assists and a goal against Cliftonville.

Hall also teed up Mitchell to open the scoring with his seventh goal in six Premiership games during his second stint at Mourneview Park, where he used to stand behind the goals as a ballboy.

"There's nothing like scoring a goal in front of your home crowd," he said." I love seeing the young ball boys round here too and hopefully I can be a role model for them to progress on to be a striker or play for Glenavon in the future.

"It was nice to get a good goal early on (on Saturday) to ease the nerves a little bit. I thought it was going to be a game in which there'd be plenty of goals and it proved to be that way. We're just happy to come away with three very, very important points."

Next up for Glenavon is a home game against Ards on Saturday afternoon.
