Celebrations for Carrick Rangers after clinching a league and cup double

Carrick Rangers are celebrating a double success after winning the Championship title and Intermediate Cup on the same night.

The league title, and promotion to the Premiership, was secured when title challengers Limavady United could only manage a 1-1 draw at Ballymoney United.

At the same time Carrick were taking on H&W Welders in the final of the Intermediate Cup at Dixon Park.

Paul Heatley's last-gasp strike gave Rangers a 1-0 win to seal the double.

Limavady needed to beat Ballymoney to keep their faint title hopes alive.
