There were mixed fortunes for the local teams in Europa League first round, first leg qualifiers last night.

Crusaders beat Faroe Islands minnows B36 Torshavn 2-0 at Seaview and are on course to meet Wolves in the next round.

Ex-Dungannon defender Chris Hegarty broke the deadlock on his debut and midfielder Philip Lowry doubled the deficit. 

Cliftonville lost 1-0 at home to Norwegian side Haugesund, who had a player sent off near the end.

And David Jeffrey's Ballymena United were thrashed 7-0 by Malmo in Sweden.
