The celebrations have been in full swing for Coleraine after the Bannsiders ended a 32-year wait to lift the League Cup.
Oran Kearney's men beat Crusaders 2-1 in Saturday night's final, taking the trophy for only the second time in the club's history and first since the 1987/88 season.
A Sammy McQuiston goal gave the Bannsiders a 1-0 victory over Portadown at The Oval on November 28th, 1987.

This time, they needed to fight back from a goal down.
Former Coleraine striker Jamie McGonigle put the north Belfast side in front in the 10th minute at Windsor Park.
Stephen Lowry equalised with a penalty for the Bannsiders before the break and James McLaughlin nodded in the second-half winner.
McGonigle had a late chance to force extra-time, but blazed over the bar.

Lowry - playing against his brother, Crues midfielder Philip - was named man of the match.
Striker Curtis Allen made his second Coleraine debut, coming off the bench 10 minutes after the interval to play his part in the cup triumph.
He's just returned to the club after a deadline day transfer from Glentoran.
The Bannsiders are now targeting a trophy treble of League Cup, Irish Cup and Danske Bank Premiership.
