29th October – Today In Our Footballing History

29/10/1975 Belfast Norway 3-0 Sammy Morgan, Sammy McIlroy, Bryan Hamilton

Pat Jennings, Pat Rice, Sammy Nelson, Allan Hunter, Chris Nicholl, Tommy Jackson, Bryan Hamilton, Sammy Morgan (Terry Cochrane), Johnny Jamison, Sammy McIlroy, Tommy Jackson

The match kicked-off at 2:30pm, the Irish were looking for a 5 goal win margin to give them a realistic chance of snatching qualification (the Irish would then require an odd goal victory in Yugoslavia the following month), they got off to a great start with two goals in the first five minutes, Sammy Morgan scored in 90 seconds, Sammy McIlroy then made it 2-0 on 5, the fans had to wait until the 53rd minute for the third scored by Bryan Hamilton, but no further goals would come.
