Sunday lunch in the Morris household tasted sweeter than normal yesterday after Lisnagarvey staged a late, late show to lift the Irish Senior Cup with a dramatic 3-2 win over UCD in Saturday's final.

Twins Harry and Matthew Morris have started what promises to be a long journey as they bid to follow in their father Ivan's footsteps as the former Ireland defender is the proud possessor of no fewer than nine winners' medals - including a magnificent seven-in-a-row with Garvey between 1988 and 1994.

Also at the lunch table yesterday was Andy Williamson, who hit the winning goal as Garvey came back from 2-1 down to score twice in the last 12 minutes against a gallant UCD side to claim the famous trophy for the first time since 2005 - and 24th time overall - with an incredible comeback.
