Uploaded Sunday, 5th Nov, 2017 at 21:28

THIS week saw Sports Bond celebrate 16 years. Licensed by Mid and East Antrim Council it is the clubs official weekly draw and has become a mainstay of the club.
Thanks for its success must go to its special team of agents who collect from the members and without their dedication to Ballymena United Sports Bond could never have enjoyed the success it has.

This week it was again "Millar time" on Sports Bond with two members with that surname winning £50 major prizes. More success in Harryville where Ian Millar (A5957), just like his sister in law Mandy a few weeks ago, was a £50 winner on the Seven Towers agency of Tommy Patterson. In Kells another Millar, Eileen Millar (A5315) who was recently in hospital won £50 on the agency of Reid McAuley. The other £50 winner was Ashley Graham (B8414) in Ballymena, Ashley like many on Sports Bond has been a previous £50 winner.

In the minor £10 section Desmond Hamill (A1454) will have a celebratory pint at the Horse and Jockey. Maurice Anderson had a £10 winner with D Swann (A5053) and in Randalstown a first win for Shea DeNiro (A9437).

Jonathan Lindsey
Jonathan Lindsey of Burnside, Doagh completed a challenge of running between 12 Irish League grounds in 8 days, a distance of 210 miles, Jonathan was running for his son's charity. He reached the Ballymena Showgrounds from Carrick last Sunday and set out at 8:30 on Monday morning to Coleraine along with friends Helena Dornan and Ivan Stringer, both had just completed the Dublin marathon on the Sunday. Jonathan completed his challenge at Ballinamallard on Saturday raising over £3000 from the challenge.

There to see him off from the Showgrounds was old friend Brian Thompson of Ballymena United. "I first met Jonathan almost 22 years ago when he was a student on a course at Belfast College of Technology and as a Linfield fan I got to know him better when I was at the club. What he has done is awesome and my heartfelt appreciation goes to what he and wife Natasha have done for their son Cameron. Two years ago Cameron was featured in a Channel 5 programme on rare illness and the couple have fought valiantly to improve his quality of life and raise funds for similar cases."
