Olympic went through the season undefeated in the league and became the first Ballymoney side to win the competition since the mid-1980s.

And manager Jonathan Mooney capped off a fantastic first season in charge by lifting the trophy.

Chairman Trevor Coulter was delighted with the performance of the team.

He said: “It’s a great achievement and we’ve had a very good season. We’ve played very well all year and showed very good discipline.

“Our players deserved this and special mention must go to Ricky Dunlop who scored six hat-tricks in one season.”

Ballymoney Olympic were formed 10 years ago and have finished second in the league three times. They also enjoyed a thrilling run in the Junior Shield this season, reaching the last 16.
