IT was all change at the top and bottom of the Belfast Telegraph Championship One league table on Saturday.

With Bangor defeating Newry and Banbridge pulling off a shock against Loughgall, it sent Ballinamallard to the top and Glebe to the bottom after a 2-0 home win.

Mallards talisman Andy Crawford put them ahead with just 8 minutes gone after Glebe failed to clear Jason McCartney's cross from the left and Ballinamallard very nearly added a second on 21 minutes, Davy Kee slipping in Chris Curran who smashed his volley off the cross bar.

Leon Cartres poked an effort narrowly past the post just before half time during a rain sodden first forty five.

Glebe raised their game after the break but failed to create any clear cut chances as they found themselves up against a resolute Ballinamallard rear guard.

It was a game of few chances with both Kee and Stafford going close but the Blues wrapped the game up on 43 minutes when Jason McCartney fired in from a Chris Curran cross.

Matt McGraw pushed a Curran shot onto the cross bar in the dying seconds but it didn't matter as Whitey Anderson's men move into first position.
