VIDEO: Here's your GAA Cruyff turn of the day

The best effort you’ll see today at keeping the ball in play in a Gaelic Football match.

HISTORY WAS MADE at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh last night.

St Paul’s (Bessbrook) booked their place in their first ever Danske Bank MacRory Cup final, the premier Ulster colleges football competition.

St Paul’s enjoyed a 2-12 to 1-6 success against Monaghan school St Macartan’s.

In an impressive team performance, it was Conor Nugent’s first-half goal that stood out for us.

The ball looks to be tailing wide as a scoring chance is lost before Nugent produced a wonderful piece of skill to keep the ball in play and fire to the net.

Johann Cruyff’s influence is spreading to other sports.
