Members of Cloughmills Northern Ireland Supporters Club held their last official club meeting before the Euro 2016 last week.

Club members were delighted to be presented with their brand new official club T shirts, especially designed the trip to France.

It really is a mixed bag of adventure for the local club, who recently celebrated their 12th anniversary.

Some of the members are set to begin their adventure on Thursday 9th June and plan to travel to all three games in Nice, Lyon and Paris.

A visit to the Ulster Tower and Thiepval Wood is also included.

Others are either staying for a couple of nights or else taking in one of the matches on offer on a one day trip.

Club chairman Samuel Forsythe says- “It’s obviously eight months since we qualified on that memorable night at Windsor Park, but it’s still hard to take in that we have qualified and that we are on the verge of being part of history being created by “Our Wee Country”!.

“This really is something special and we just can’t wait for the tournament to begin,” added Samuel.

The club members were proud to receive the official Tennents beer glass from the Gareth Montgomery, proprietor of Patton’s Bar and Restaurant, where the club hold their regular meetings.

A Euro 2016 sweep stake is also being organised with tickets on sale at £5 per team-all money collected will be paid out in prizes!

Matches will be shown live in Patton’s bar and everyone is more than welcome to come and join the members and friends of Cloughmills Northern Ireland Supporters Club.
