Crusaders FC manager Stephen Baxter hailed his players as "history makers" after the Belfast side celebrated a club first in Lithuania.

Two goals from winger Paul Heatley secured a 2-1 second-leg win and 5-2 aggregate victory over FK Ekranas to ease the Crues through to the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League. It is the first time the Northern Irish club has progressed in Europe, the Seaview men having fallen at the first hurdle in UEFA competitions in 13 previous attempts.
