It’s not often a football club’s new signings are described as “wee darlings” but that’s what’s happening at Greenisland FC.

A photocall was held recently to mark the arrival of 11 babies, who have been born to first and second team players and coaches between May and October this year.

First of the new arrivals Saul Greer with dad Ryan and the latest Sam Kerby with dad Alan.
