STUART STRIKE HANDS SWANS THE WIN
Darren Stuart bagged the only goal of the game as Newington edged past Banbridge Town at Solitude.
The 29-year-old former Larne and Cliftonville man struck on 82 minutes to keep the Swans in third place.
The visitors might have gone in front ten minutes from the break when Stephen McCavitt was upended in the area by the home keeper but Marc Maybin redeemed himself by saving Christopher McMahon's resultant spot-kick.
