Newry City have been relegated from the Danske Bank Premiership.

They lost 1-0 at home to Dungannon Swifts on the final day of the league campaign.

It was Newry's first season back in the top flight and manager Darren Mullen is now targeting a rapid return from the Championship...



Ards drew 1-1 away to Warrenpoint and now go into a promotion/relegation play-off against Carrick or Portadown.

16-year-old Jonah Heron was drafted into the Ards team at the last minute and claimed their goal. 

Glentoran clinched the final European play-off place by beating Institute 2-0 at the Oval - Darren Murray and Marcus Kane with the goals.

It completes an unbeaten first month in charge for Head Coach Mick McDermott...



Glenavon beat Cliftonville 4-0 at Mourneview Park to take third place.

Reds midfielder Ryan Catney was sent off. 

Last year's league winners Crusaders finish fourth.

They had a 3-0 win at Ballymena on Saturday, but it's reported the points could be handed to the Sky Blues as "an administrative error" meant David Cushley wasn't listed on the official teamsheet as a Crusaders substitute.

Coleraine and visiting champions Linfield drew 1-1.
