VIDEO: Stars shine at Ballymena Sports Awards

It was the end of an era as the final Ballymena Borough Council Sports Awards under the present format took place last night (Thursday).

Players, coaches and officials from many sporting backgrounds gathered for the last ceremony before the local government reform which will see Ballymena join Larne and Carrick Councils under the new Mid and East Antrim District Council banner from the start of April.
