Congratulations to Ballymena RFC in their promotion to Division 1B! Our very own Gillies Barman, Jordan Foster, who was part of the team and we could not be more delighted for the players and supporters.
Before the game Ballymena were sitting 3rd in the league and 1 point behind the second placed UCC. Ballymena went on to beat NUIM Barnhall 23 – 14 but were left biting their nails as they waited to hear the result of the City of Derry Vs UCC match.
Good news made its way back to Eaton park that UCC had lost and Ballymena were now promoted. A pitch invasion of celebration soon occured as the players and fans rejoiced in this terrific achievement.
