Collins provides sting in the tail


Fanad United came within seconds of a huge upset at Monaghan last night.

As injury-time began, the Ulster Senior League champions were a goal to the good, thanks to Eunan Kelly's 38th-minute strike.

Then, in the 92nd minute Conor Murphy equalised for Monaghan and from their next attack, Aidan Collins curled in a superb winner.
