Carrick junior side Castle Star secured promotion to Ballymena and Provincial League Division 2 at the weekend.

With two games in hand over leaders 3rd Ballyclare OB, Star are still in the hunt for the title, but there is a seven-point gap between the two teams.

Saturday’s thumping 7-0 win over Red Star came on the back of a midweek 5-2 success over Carrick Thistle.

Since a 1-0 defeat to 3rd Ballyclare in January, Star have won seven games on the spin.
