Cliftonville’s Conor McDermott has put his name up in lights with a superb strike from his own half against Warrenpoint Town this afternoon.

McDermott picked up the ball inside his own half, lifting the ball over a Warrenpoint Town forward before unleashing a fierce drive into the back of the net.

Conor came through the underage ranks at Derry City' and was part of the club's under-19 squad from 2014 to 2016.

He was also included in Kenny Shiels' senior squad in 2016 and made his league debut for the Candystripes as a late substitute in the 3-0 win over Shamrock Rovers on 8 April 2016.

His impact was immediate, and he got his first league start two weeks later against Bohemians, going on to make 21 league appearances that year.

McDermott re-signed for the Candystripes ahead of the 2018 season before joining Cliftonville during the summer of 2019.  

Cliftonville won this afternoon’s game over Warrenpoint Town by a four-nil margin. Ryan Curran, Mark McKee and Joe Gormley also got on the scoresheet for the Reds.
