ARTHURS AND WARWICK ON TARGET FOR ARDS

A goal in either half helped Ards secure a place in the quarter-finals of the JBE League Cup.

Ards almost moved in front after seven minutes when Annagh midfielder Philip Craig turned the ball onto his own crossbar whilst attempting to clear a corner.

But Niall Currie's side did lead at the break when Ross Arthurs rose highest on 27 minutes to head home Aaron Boyd's cross from the left.

And they doubled their advantage four minutes into the second half when Gary Warwick tucked away the rebound from a Craig McMillen effort that had been pushed out.
