Local men sing up for the Sky Blues!
Ballymena United this month will do something no other Irish League club has done.
It will release its own song written by Ballymena United fan Colin Agnew.
Last May he contacted Sales and marketing Executive Brian Thompson who believed here was an exceptional public relations and marketing initiative.
Thanks to sponsorship from McBurney Transport and Francey Coach Hire, the song was recorded a few weeks locally at Paul McNeilly’s Pinegrove Studios.
Paul is a well known musician in his own right and features on the track, local man Davy Sloan is the lead singer and completing the line up is “Mr Football” himself, Jackie Fullerton.
Brian says the song “Have you ever Wondered Why?” will appeal to Sky Blue fans far and wide.
The lyrics refer to the club’s history, past and recent, it has a humour and a rawness that every true Sky Blue will identify with.
The song will be played at the Showgrounds for the first time at this Saturday’s game against Coleraine and the CD will be on sale in the next few weeks costing £3.
This was an entirely local production which makes for an exceptional CD, thanks to Colin Agnew for a very personal song, to Paul McNeilly for a marvellous production, to Davy Sloan for his inimitable style and to Jackie Fullerton who brings his own professionalism to the project.
