Glaston had got off to a good start when Jim Mullen netted early on, but Terence Morrison equalised with a 35 yard shot near the half-time whistle.

Joe Trainor scored from a free kick to give the visitors the lead in the second-half and that appeared to have secured the points for his team.

But Paul O’Callaghan had other ideas and he put Glaston level close to the end.

The goal appeared to have earned Glaston a share of the spoils but again the game took a twist when Wills netted the winner with the last kick of the game.

Sandy Row manager, Stephen Scott, thought they deserved full points, though he admitted they thought they had lost out.

He said: “We defended very well and I thought we were the better team in the second-half.”

The Glaston camp, on the other hand thought they had done enough to at least get a draw.
