Linfield Swifts have won the Reserve League for season 2014/15 with a three point cushion over runners-up Coleraine Reserves.
The Swifts lifted the Reserve League trophy at The Bangor Fuels arena after their final league game against Glenavon Reserves.
During their campaign the 'Blues' won 24 of their 33 leagues games while only losing three. They also scored 112 goals with an impressive average of just over three goals a game.
Manager Sammy McFadden commented: "I'm really thrilled for the players as they have shown great character after losing out on last year's title to Cliftonville Olympic on the last day of the season by a single point.
"The guys have applied themselves throughout the season and have worked hard in every game.
"What is also pleasing is that the majority of the winning squad are relatively young and this bodes well for the future of the club.
"In closing I would like to thank my assistant Alan Simpson, physio Paul Butler and team attendant Mark Alexander for all their hard work behind the scenes.
"We can’t rest on our laurels and our players must strive to progress and aspire to getting senior squad status. We will have now have a deserved rest before preparing for season 2015/16."
