Kirk Millar meets Linfield shirt sponsor
Posted : 6th September 2014
Linfield star Kirk Millar called at the Shankill premises of Linfield shirt sponsor Mooneys yesterday to remind supporters that they can now buy their Linfield home shirt at the Shankill Superstore with the Mooneys logo proudly displayed on the front.
Speaking at Mooneys Shankill base, Kirk Millar was delighted to display the hugely popular and successful new Linfield home shirt along with sponsor Stephen Mooney.
"It's great to be here today to promote a Shankill Road business serving the local community. I'm from the area myself and it's great that Mooneys is backing Linfield in such a practical and whole hearted way. It's also great to see so many people from this area and indeed many other areas wearing the lovely new Linfield shirt. It's a great way of showing you support for the club and it's great that there's a Superstore on the Shankill meeting the needs of all our supporters.
It was a close, hard fought game at Solitude on Tuesday night. We were disappointed not to come away with all 3 points but we're all now looking forward to next Saturday's home game against Warrenpoint Town.
It was good to get the 2 clean sheets in our last 2 away games and it was encouraging to maintain our unbeaten league run at such a tough venue.
It'll be great getting back to Windsor Park next Saturday and I hope a good number of our supporters turn our next week to see us back playing at home again.
I join up with the under 21 squad on Saturday to prepare for a game against Serbia at 4pm on Tuesday at Shamrock Park. That should be a good game and it's always nice to be called up to play for your country, so I'm really looking forward to that. Aaron Burns has also been called up and he deserves his chance. It's great to see Linfield and indeed other Irish League players getting this sort of international recognition.
I'm really pleased with the way I've settled in at the club. My fitness levels are improving and I feel I'm getting sharper all the time."
