This week sees the much anticipated launch of the Official History of Ballymena United Football Club on Thursday 15 October at the Showgrounds.

All supporters are welcome to the club’s free night of nostalgia which will include all the trophies won by Ballymena United over the years, footage of memorable goals and games and plenty of familiar faces all in one place for one night only!

As well as the book launch - which gets underway at 7pm - DJ Davy King will be hosting a lively debate as part of our Legends Evening section of the event. Taking part in our Legends Evening are an illustrious quartet of former Ballymena United players; Dessie Loughery, Graham Fox, Mark Carlisle and joint club record appearance holder Eddie Russell.

“We have been overwhelmed by the support for the launch of this book since we confirmed it was happening. It promises to be a really special evening in the history of this great football club!” said author Neil Coleman.

The Official History of Ballymena United FC will be available for the first time at the book launch priced £14.99. Books will be available for purchase online via www.ballymenaunitedfc.com from Friday 16 October.
