LSL Senior Sunday
Adam Ashe is becoming as synonymous with a Late Late show as Uncle Gaybo himself.
The Bluebell player scored an injury time winner for Bluebell against Firhouse Clover in recent weeks and repeated the feat on Sunday afternoon.
With a crucial game against Cherry Orchard deadlocked going into the final few minutes Ashe found the net to secure ‘Bell victory.
It’s wasn’t as pretty as the finish against Clover(which you can watch below) but it was as important as the reigning champions ended Orchard’s unbeaten record.

Bluebell took the lead as early as 15 minutes, but only after Glenn Walsh denied former ‘Bell front man the chance to break the deadlock for the visitors with a well timed challenge.
Within five minutes the hosts were in front Aaron Robinson pounced come set piece time and put the finishing touches on a dangerous ball into the box.
Coombes tested Adam Hayden a minute later as the Orchard responded well and came close again with an effort just six minutes later.
Bluebell looked the more likely without really creating a clear cut chance over the next few minutes, but with five minutes until half time Deco Heavey’s men found themselves level as Walsh headed into his own net to leave it level at the turn.
The game was more open after the turn and but for a brilliant Hayden save Orchard, who were unbeaten going into the tie, could have crept ahead.
‘Bell were then handed a real let off as the away side missed a sitter at the back post around the hour mark.
Momentum then looked to swing the home sides way as Coombes recieved his marching orders with just over 20 minutes to go, but just three minutes later it was all square in terms of scoreline and player numbers as Sean Gleeson joined his former team mate in the stands.
When Shane Stricth fired straight at the keep when he would have expected to do better a draw looked the most likely result.
However, with four minutes remaining Ashe popped up with another decisive goal. It wasn’t overly pretty as the form player bundled home from close range, but the home line were not to concerned with how the crucila winner looked.
