Amateur League side 18th Newtownabbey Old Boys finished the season with a comfortable 4-2 victory away to Groomsport in midweek.

Goals from Paul Harper, Jackie Moore (two), Ricky Moore secured the Monkstown side’s sixth straight victory in Division 1C.

Manager Garry Campbell explained: “We were trying to keep the wee run going – even if this did very much look like an end-of-season game. Groomsport confused us for a while by playing four central midfielders, but once we sorted that out ... we were fine, and were very comfortable in the end.”
