Premiership new boys Newry City can boast a quintet of players in the 2022 Championship Team of the Year.

Goalkeeper Steven Maguire is joined by defenders Darren King and Noel Healy, plus talented attacking midfielders James Teelan and Philip Donnelly.

Runners-up Annagh United are represented by Lee Upton, Craig Taylor and Niall Henderson. Ballinamallard United’s South African BJ Banda and Harland & Wolff Welders legend Michael McLellan make an exciting front line, with Loughgall defender Ben Murdock completing the line-up.

The team was selected by members of the Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association and the Lough 41 Championship managers. The NI Football Awards are jointly organised by NIFWA and NIFL.
