Portstewart celebrate golden anniversary

SATURDAY promises to be a red letter day for Portstewart Football Club.

Following the first team's Bluefin Sport Premier Intermediate League clash away at old rivals Tobermore Utd in the afternoon, the evening will give away to a gala 50th anniversary dinner in the evening at Portstewart Golf Club.

Famous names from the club's illustrious past will be there to celebrate the many successes enjoyed by the Seahawks down the years, among them one of the club's most successful managers Frankie 'Basher' Moffatt.

Special guest for the occasion will be former Irish League great Liam Beckett, now a popular pundit with BBC Sport NI, and no doubt he will regale those present with some amusing stories from his lengthy career in the game.

The night also marks the publication of a new book on the history of the club, written by local man and long-time Portstewart support Brian Henry.

'Portstewart FC 50th Anniversary' is the second book written by Brian and follows the first book reflecting on the club's first 25 years.
