Nixon dedicates goal to Jerry

COLERAINE TV spoke to Stewart Nixon after the attacker scored an injury-time winner against Warrenpoint Town…

Just as it looked like Coleraine were going to suffer a frustrating day at The Showgrounds and end up with a point, Nixon slammed home a late winner to clinch a vital three points for Oran Kearney’s men.

Nixon credited James McLaughlin for the assist and acknowledged that he didn’t do much throughout the game but he popped up at the right time to bag the winner.

In an emotional week for the Ballymena man, Nixon dedicated the goal to his friend Jerry Thompson who sadly passed away this time last year.
