Conn the mark

As well as registering a personal milestone by scoring on his debut, Caoimhin McConnell also clocked up a Cliftonville goal landmark in Tuesday night’s victory over Lisburn Distillery.

The eye-catching 52nd minute strike which put the Reds 4-0 up – and which bore close similarity to his pre-season effort against Ballinamallard United – was the Club’s 250th League Cup goal at Solitude, while the 251st saw Conor McMenamin open his own account in addition to maintaining the tradition of the net having been found in the final four minutes of all five of Cliftonville’s domestic fixtures so far this season.

While it might be bordering on churlish to suggest that Joe Gormley scoring headers in consecutive games is noteworthy in itself, what certainly isn’t in doubt is that Saturday’s Danske Bank Premiership encounter with Linfield – which was the Reds’ 300th home draw in the League – saw defender Levi Ives make his 125th appearance for the Club.
