So . . . . . here we have it.

A season which started with the disappointment from relegation the previous season but has gradually built and built with a lot of change & hard work with great times had by both clubs throughout the current season comes down to a playoff between 2 of the 5 relegated teams from the NIFL Championship 2 which was re-designed last season.
