Warrenpoint Town's appeal against their Premiership relegation in the North has been rejected after an arbitration hearing.

The club appealed the IFA's decision not to impose a penalty on Carrick Rangers after then manager Gary Haveron incorrectly served a ban.

A successful appeal would have left Carrick relegated and Warrenpoint in a promotion/relegation play-off.

The decision means that  Ballinamallard and Institute will meet now meet in the play-off second leg on Wednesday with a 7.45 pm kick-off.
