Twigg nets on debut

GARY TWIGG has managed to bring his scoring touch across the border as he marked his debut for Irish League side Portadown by scoring the winning goal.

Twigg announced two months ago that he was quitting Shamrock Rovers to join Portadown but he had to wait until Saturday for his first game for the club, and made an immediate impact by netting the winner against Donegal Celtic.

"It was great to score on my debut but the most important thing was the three points," he said.

"Portadown have ambitions and this should get us closer to the top six, which is where we want to be."
