Linfield FC is delighted to welcome Ballyclare LSC as match ball sponsor of Saturday’s ‘Big Two’ Derby game at Windsor Park.
Ballyclare LSC is a long established club who own their own premises in Abercorn drive in the County Antrim Town and they celebrated their special 50th anniversary just over a year ago.
Several well known names including Amos Scott, Crawford Surgeoner and Jim Rainey have been synonymous with the Ballyclare club over the years and their current President is Linfield vice chairman Stephen Dickson.
Looking ahead to Saturday’s game Jim Rainey added
“Founded in 1968, the 1st Ballyclare Linfield Supporters’ Club celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. During its time up to the recession in 2008, the club made regular large donations to Linfield Football Club but like other licensed clubs, it hit hard times with the changes in public bar licensing hours, the smoking ban and the downturn in the economy. However, over the last five years, with tight financial management, the club returned to profit and have been in a position to again give donations to the parent club. We are delighted to sponsor today’s match ball for the first ‘Big Two’ match of the season.”
We thank the Ballyclare club for their kind sponsorship of Saturday’s game and trust that their guests will enjoy the occasion and the hospitality on offer at Windsor Park for this huge Belfast Big Two Derby game.
