Video: Injured Derry footballer lifts Ulster Junior trophy from ambulance

Injured Derry player Grace Conway lifts the trophy from an ambulance after being injured in the Ulster Junior final 

THERE was an unusual cup presentation after the TG4 Ulster Junior Final when an injured player held the trophy aloft from an ambulance.

Derry defender Grace Conway injured her wrist during the team's victory over Antrim in Emyvale and missed the official presentation on the pitch.

The Moneymore dentist, who is only new to the panel this year, enjoyed the special moment after medical staff and teammates made sure she was able to join in the celebrations.

'She was outstanding', says manager Paul Crozier who rated Grace as his Player of the Match in Derry's first Ulster Junior title in a decade.
