NOW IT'S FIVE IN A ROW FOR NEWRY

Newry City made it five wins from five with victory over Ards in the top of the table clash at The Showgrounds.
 
Both sides had gone into the game with a 100% perfect after the opening four rounds of games so something had to give.
 
And it was visitors Ards that seized the early advantage when, after just 11 minutes, they edged in front through Ross Arthurs following a great cross from Salou Jallow.
 
However, two goals midway through the second half saw Darren Mullen's side turn that around to claim another three points.
 
Substitute Mark Kelly, only on the pitch a matter of moments, levelled before, just a few minutes later, Darren King knocked home the second to ultimately secure the win and move Newry three points clear at the top.
