Cliftonville have booked their place in next season's Europa League after two extra time goals gave them a win over Glentoran at Solitude.

The sides met on Saturday evening for the decider and ended up battling out a scoreless 90 minutes.

It was only in extra time that Cliftonville found a way to break the deadlock.

Joe Gormley provided that late opening goal.

And then, just two minutes before the end of the game, Conor McMenamin scored for the Reds to put the result beyond doubt.

The Europa League place is worth in the region of £200,000.

While Cliftonville can celebrate victory, Glentoran will be left disappointed to lose out in the decider for a second season running.
