Institute midfielder Darren McCauley won the September BT Sport NIFWA Championship player of the month award.

The former Derry City and Coleraine man starred for Paul Kee's side in September, scoring in five goal victories against both Limavady United and Carrick Rangers. McCauley also scored against Newbuildings in the Craig Memorial Cup.

Runner-up was Bangor winger Jordan Forsythe, while Dundela striker Carl McComb was third.

Larne have placed goalkeeper Chris Keenan on the transfer list. Experienced shot stopper Keenan is currently in his third spell with the Inver Park club.

Bangor have postponed Tuesday's League Cup clash with Lurgan Celtic as their new 3G pitch will not be ready in time. The game is likely to be played next Tuesday, with their Belfast Telegraph Championship One game on Saturday against Knockbreda likely to be the first game played on the new surface. If all goes to plan, their new pitch will be inspected on Thursday.

Lisburn Distillery travel to Shamrock Park to face Portadown on Tuesday night in the third round of the League Cup, while Institute face Glenavon at Mourneview Park.

Newington YC will play Tobermore United in Championship Two on Friday night at Seaview. The game was brought forward to avoid a clash with Crusaders' Premiership game with Ards on Saturday.

Armagh City's Gareth Grimley equalled the club's individual goalscoring record by scoring six times against Dungannon Swifts Reserves at Holm Park in the Bob Radcliffe Cup last week. The record had been held by Vincent Digby for nearly 40 years.
