Football: Armstrong in the money.

SEAN ARMSTRONG has collected a pounds 300 Irish Cup bonus - three weeks before Glentoran face Portadown in the final.

The 23-year-old Oval striker is in the money as Bass personality of the semi-finals for his late, late winner against Linfield.

But Sean would sacrifice all the cash for a guarantee of wearing a Glentoran jersey on May 6.

"My goal is history," said the nephew of Northern Ireland's World Cup legend, Gerry Armstrong. "We have a 20-man squad and nobody can be certain of making the final 14.

"All I've won so far is a new suit. The whole squad are being kitted out for the big day at Windsor Park."

Armstrong deserves a cup break considering his last potential glory day went pear-shaped.

Four years ago, he had battled to the first round proper with little Donegal Celtic.

But a tie against the Royal Ulster Constabulary fell victim to the political climate and never happened.
