Antrim secured the first win of their Football League Division Four campaign by comfortably beating Waterford.

The Saffrons raced into an early lead in difficult conditions at Creggan and led 0-11 to 0-2 at half-time, with CJ McGourty prominent on the scoresheet.

A Paddy Cunningham goal extended his side's lead to 11 points and a McGourty point from play made it 1-15 to 0-5.

Kevin Niblock made his return to action as a substitute and scored a point for the victors late on.

It was a much-needed victory for Antrim as they had lost their opening two league matches.

A five-point defeat by Leitrim was followed by a 3-9 to 1-13 loss to Wicklow three weeks ago.

Liam Bradley's side travel to face Carlow next Sunday.
