Newtownabbey Borough Council is to write to Ballyclare RFC to congratulate the club’s First XV on reaching the final of this year’s Junior Cup.

At the Leisure Committee meeting on Monday evening (December 2), Cllr Pat McCudden pointed to the club’s success in last season’s Towns’ Cup, their magnificent win over Coleraine last Saturday to reach the Junior Cup final and their unbeaten run in the Qualifying League this season.

The Alliance councillor’s proposal that the council should write to the club to congratulate the First XV on its ongoing success was seconded by Alderman Paul Girvan and agreed unanimously by members.

Alderman Girvan also praised Cllr McCudden for his involvement with Ballyclare RFC over many years and the effort he has put in to helping make the club a success.
