Carrick Rangers players Conor McCloskey and Aaron Harmon have completed moves to fellow Premiership clubs Ballymena United and Glentoran respectively.

Midfielder McCloskey, 24, has signed a two-year contract with the Sky Blues.

McCloskey played for Portadown, before moving to Carrick Rangers in the summer of 2012, and was named the club's Young Player of the Year in 2014.

The Glens have secured Harmon, who has been at the Taylor's Avenue club since 2011, on a two-year deal.

Harmon captained the Carrick side which earned promotion from the Championship in the 2014-15 season.

McCloskey is the latest addition to David Jeffrey's Ballymena squad, with the Braidmen already having also acquired defenders Johnny Flynn, Denver Gage and Kyle Owens, plus striker Cathair Friel.

Last week, another Carrick Rangers player, Andrew Doyle, signed for Irish Cup winners Glenavon.
