Commenting on the scheme, a spokesperson for Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council said: “Council is providing a supporting and partnership role on this project which is being led by Crusaders Football Club.
“The money awarded by council is part of the overall scheme which is subject to funding from the Department for Communities.”
