BAILIE GETS ARDS REIGN OFF TO WINNING START

Ards marked John Bailie's first game in charge of the club with a three goal defeat of Dundela at Wilgar Park.

Michael McLellan might have opened the scoring for Ards early in the game only to be denied by the right hand post.

Craig McMillen then had a chance midway through the first half while, for Dundela, Owain Beggs was thwarted by keeper Brian Neeson.

However, Ards did find a way through just before the break when Scott McMillan headed home after Johnny Taylor had knocked back a McMillen corner.

Dundela were reduced to ten men early in the second half when keeper Ryan McBride was adjudged to have handled outside the area and from the free-kick that followed McLellan fired home into the top corner.

McLellan then added a bit of gloss to the scoreline with number three nine minutes from time with a shot and turn inside the box.
