Ballymena United’s Boxing Day home game against Coleraine will once again be an all-ticket fixture.

Tickets will be priced at £10 for adults and £7 for concessions for both sets of supporters.

The first batch of tickets for home supporters is currently available at Stirling Trophies, Queen Street.

Tickets are also on sale at the Kiosk newsagency at Ballymena railway station, while tickets will be on sale at each of the two forthcoming home games against Linfield and Crusaders.

Ballymena United season ticket holders are required to obtain a ticket but will not have to pay if they provide their season ticket when collecting.

JUNIOR SKY BLUES

The next meeting of the popular Junior Sky Blues initiative will be the Christmas Party on Saturday 13th December at the earlier time of 1pm before Ballymena United’s home game against Crusaders.

Parents/guardians are also warmly invited to attend.

The party will feature all the usual fun and games as well as a hot buffet lunch. There will also be a visit from Santa and some of the players.

Johnny Taylor and Gary Thompson were special guests at the Junior Sky Blues’ Halloween Party recently.

The players were on hand to help the children update their club scrapbooks, sign autographs and draw the winners of the October prizes.

Lucky winner of the home shirt was Ethan Gaston, while Matas Cesaitis won a £20 Smyth’s Toy Store voucher and Matthew McConnell a £10 voucher.

SUPPORTERS’ NEWS

Anyone intending to use Seven Towers Supporters’ Club transport to the forthcoming League Cup semi-final at Ballinamallard later this month is reminded that they must purchase a bus ticket, priced at £10, as soon as possible, in order to determine numbers.

Enquriries to Tommy Patterson or Uel Allen.

This applies to both members and non-members of the Seven Towers Club.

HISTORY PROJECT

The club is still looking for supporters of all ages to help with a special history project for 2015.

Supporters with old photos or memorabilia from the past are being asked to loan their items to the club for a short time. The older the photos the better and any memorabilia such as old programmes, tickets, medals or items of interest would be of interest.

If you have relatives that have played for the club or perhaps you are reading this as an ex-Ballymena player, and if you feel you can contribute stories, knowledge or information to history of the club please get in contact by e-mailing history@ballymenaunitedfc.com or contacting Neil Coleman or Iain Black on match-days.
