Crusaders have lost the points from Saturday's 3-0 Danske Bank Premiership victory at Ballymena due to an admin error.

League officials have also fined the Crues £500 after sub David Cushley wasn't named on the official teamsheet.

Ballymena are awarded a 3-0 win but it doesn't affect the final positions in the Premiership. 

The Sky Blues finish runners-up with Tennent's Irish Cup finalists Crusaders back in fourth place.



Glentoran Women dropped their first points of the campaign as two goals in the final twenty minutes from Sion Swifts rescued a point at the Melvin Sports Complex on Wednesday night.

After a scoreless first half, Diarmuid O’Carroll’s Glens looked to be on their way to three points thanks to two goals from Demi Vance.

However, the Strabane-based hosts, who eliminated Linfield from the League Cup two days earlier, struck back through Tyler Toland and Lauren Brennan to rescue a point.



Two goals in the space of four minutes before the break continued Linfield Ladies’ winning start to the league campaign with a victory at Crusaders Strikers.

Kelsie Burrows and Megan Bell struck for the Blues, who have already been eliminated from two cup competitions, to give the defending champions victory at the Crues - who have now lost successive league matches to nil.

Cliftonville Ladies also made it two wins from two as they inflicted a 3-0 defeat on Derry City, who are still without a point, at Solitude.

Despite being scoreless at half-time, a double from Leah McEvoy and a Marissa Callaghan free-kick gave the points to the Reds.

Glentoran remain top of the standings, but Linfield and Cliftonville are both just a point off the top with each playing a game fewer.
