Watch: Goalposts Bend Amid Some Testing Storm Eleanor Conditions

Watch: Goalposts Bend Amid Some Testing Storm Eleanor Conditions

Storm Eleanor was blowing hard in Belfast on Tuesday night. Despite the testing conditions, Antrim and Ulster University's McGurk Cup game still went ahead.

In a game which saw the goalposts bending to the will of the wind, Antrim won: 1-18 to 2-7.

"It's the first time I've seen the posts nearly come down on top of us, it was unbelievable," UU manager Ollie Bellews told Jerome Quinn after the game. "It didn't feel that bad but when you see the goal posts blowing about like that, it was pretty hectic."

Ulster University player Daithi Sands said he had never played in such conditions.

Nothing as bad as that. Towards to end, I'd say everyone was the same: hands going numb and you could barely strike to ball, nevermind get it into your hand. It was mad and the wind seemed to be getting worse as the game went on.
