Andrew Waterworth scored a hat-trick as Linfield beat Coleraine 3-0 to secure the Irish Cup for the first time in five-years.

A 12,000-strong crowd at Windsor Park witnessed a dominant display from David Healy's men, whose win sealed a trio of trophies for the season.

After a strong start from the Blues, Waterworth scored twice in the first-half and completed his treble with a late strike. His was the first hat-trick in an Irish Cup final since 1969.

Coleraine’s had several opportunities, mostly coming in the second-half, but they failed to seriously trouble a Linfield side who always looked in control.
