The countdown to the Steel and Sons Cup final is well and truly on.

Carrick take on HW Welders in the Christmas morning showpiece and this morning both club’s bosses, Gary Haveron and Gary Smyth, were at Seaview to be pictured with the famous old trophy ahead of the game.

They were joined by Glenn Taggart and Aaron Harmon (Carrick) and Davy Rainey and Chris Middleton (Welders).
