Sub Shevlin nets point for United thumbnailBallymena Unitedís Conor McCloskey turns away to celebrate scoring against Warrenpoint Town.

SUPER sub Matthew Shevlin scored a late, late equaliser to net United a share of the points.
The teen was in the right place to poke home from close range to salvage a draw.
United made a bright start, striker Cathair Friel putting them in front after three minutes after a long throw-in by Conor McCloskey was headed his way six yards out.
The lead was short lived and five minutes later Town equalised, 17-year-old Lorcan Faorde heading in from a corner.
Emmet Friars fouled on the edge of the box with 13 minutes gone and from the free-kick Conor McMenamin fired through a packed goal mouth and in past 'keeper Ross Glendinning.
United's response was instant and striker Johnny McMurray almost levelled matters, crashing a shot off the crossbar after McKinney had crossed.
Town tried for a third, first Forde having an effort saved by the feet of Glendinning and then Stephen Murray pinging the rebound just wide of the target.
William Faulkner replaced McKinney at half time and had an instant impact.
He threaded a perfect through ball for McCloskey to chase and then shoot past 'keeper Beerat Turker.
