Runaway title winners Warrenpoint Town rounded off their Championship campaign with a 4-1 victory at Loughgall on Saturday.

It means they finish a sensational season 15 points clear at the top of the table.

John McGuigan was again among the goalscorers ahead of his move back to Glentoran.

The Point are adding a number of new players to the squad and manager Matthew Tipton says they're already looking forward to next season in the Danske Bank Premiership.

New recruits for Tipton include former Portadown players Darren Murray and Sean Mackle, as well as ex-Northern Ireland international keeper Alan Blayney.

Goalkeeper Stephen Maguire says the Point players are relishing the prospect of taking on the big guns.
