Glentoran goalkeeper Elliott Morris got his name on the score-sheet for the first time ever on Saturday afternoon as the Glens won 2-0 at Institute.

It's safe to say it required a slice of fortune and a fumble by his opposite number Martin Gallagher, who certainly wasn't helped by the glaring sun shining in his eyes at the Brandywell.

But crisis-hit Glentoran won't complain as they ended their longest ever winless league run of 10 Danske Bank Premiership matches thanks to Morris' 11-minute goal and teenager Paul O'Neill's late clincher.

Watch that Morris goal right here:

The Irish League's favourite statto Marshall Gillespie soon tweeted to confirm that the last goalkeeper to score in the Irish League's top tier was Cliftonville's John Connolly, who netted a penalty against Linfield on December 10th, 2010.
