A time to Remember
Uploaded Thursday, 25th Apr, 2019 at 09:18

AMIDST the celebrations this Saturday, we will also take time to remember those sky blues no longer with us as we mark our annual Memorial Day.
Last season the board of Ballymena United made the decision that the final home game of every season will start with a minute of silent reflection to remember those sky blues who are no longer with us.
Chairman John Taggart explained, "we receive many requests each season to mark the passing of former players, supporters, family and friends. There are obviously times where it is entirely appropriate to do so, but it's not possible to have a minute silence as regularly as it is requested.
Rather than causing offence or upset to families, we wanted to do something that gives the club and supporters the chance to remember and to stand in solidarity with family and friends who have lost loved ones during the season.
The personal responses when we introduced the Memorial Day last season were very touching and it was felt by those supporters who lost loved ones to be a very fitting tribute at the season's close."
