We’ll have our full report tomorrow.

Speaking after the match Gary Hamilton also confirmed that Kris Lindsay has agreed to become the new Dungannon Swifts manager and he dedicated tonight’s victory to the Glenavon coach who he described as a model professional. Again we’ll have a fuller interview with Gary tomorrow.

Coincidentally Kris’ first match in charge of the Swifts sees them come to Mourneview Park this Saturday for our next Danske Bank Premiership fixture – you won’t want to miss it!
