WATCH | Sadler's Peaky Blinder Irish Cup final Uncut

Go behind the scenes of the Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Irish Cup final - a game that will live long in the memory for being the first in the UK with supporters post-lockdown. 

The showpiece, staged at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park in arguably the most unique set of circumstances in the competition’s long history due to the Covid-19 pandemic, was played in front of 500 fans split equally between Glentoran and Ballymena United.

Both sets of fans certainly made their voices heard as the teams gave their all on pitch. 

But it was the Glens who emerged victorious with Robbie McDaid’s extra-time winner sealing the deal after Ballymena’s Cathair Friel’s early second-half header had cancelled out Paul O’Neill’s sublime 22nd-minute opener.

Irish Cup Uncut captures the highs and the lows of a final that will be remembered for many years to come.
