Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust Charity Game

A group of former Ballymena United players will share a dressing room and don the boots again next weekend and all for a good cause.
The ex Sky Blues, along with other local footballers now playing under the recently formed Ballymena Town over-35s name, will take on Scottish visitors Carluke on the 3G pitch at the Showgrounds on Saturday, May 13, in a special charity fixture.
The local side will have the experience of players with almost 1,000 appearances for Ballymena between them at Irish League level.
The local line-up includes Ballymena-based players who proudly represented their hometown club at senior level, including Nigel Boyd, John McDowell, Paul Muir, Darren Parker, and Scott Drummond, to name just a few, along with a number of players who played at Championship and Saturday Morning League level, who have reached the age of 35.
Another former Ballymena star, Colin O'Neill, will also be present as he hopes to catch up with some old friends from Carluke, who are based near Motherwell, where O'Neill is still revered for his famous 1991 Scottish Cup semi-final goal against Celtic, en route to 'Well winning the final.
The match kicks off at the Showgrounds 3G at 3pm with proceeds raised going towards the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust, whose aim is to help families whose loved ones have died while away from home.
The organisation's work was brought into sharp focus at a local level last summer when it assisted with the repatriation of Ballymena man Darren Rodgers, who tragically passed away while attending the Euro 2016 finals in France.
