Linfield Rangers - League Champions
Posted : 12th April 2019 at 21:55:49
Congratulations to Ryan Prentice and his Linfield Rangers squad who won their league tonight in thrilling dramatic style.
Going into tonight’s games three teams could have won the league - Linfield, Ards and Dungannon.
Linfield led the league table on goal difference from Ards but Ards only needed a three goal swing to overturn the goal difference advantage.
Meanwhile third place Dungannon were only 2 points behind and defeats for Linfield and Ards would have handed the title to the Tyrone men.
Tonight’s results were
Ards 2 Crusaders 1
Dungannon 0 Linfield 1
Trai Hume’s goal has won the league for Linfield Rangers tonight.
Linfield and Ards both won 15, drew 4 and lost 3 of their 22 league games to end up with 49 points but crucially Linfield had an advantage on goal difference of 3 goals handing the league title to Ryan Prentice’s team.
And the Rangers have a Youth Cup final to look forward to on May 6 v St Oliver Plunkett.
