#MakeItMagical Toy Appeal
Larne Football Club have teamed up with Women’s Aid and their #MakeItMagical campaign for this year’s Christmas Toy Appeal. We aim to collect packaged toys, fuel vouchers and other gifts which will be used to ensure underprivileged children in the local area have a magical Christmas this year. Any supporters who wish to donate to our campaign can do so by dropping their toys into the boardroom or one of our collection bins on Saturday. Thank you in advance!
Cliftonville have been in fine form recently and went top of the league table following their 1-0 victory over Ballymena on Saturday past. In our previous meeting with the North Belfast side, the Invermen were on the wrong end of a 1-0 defeat following a late Ryan Curran winner. Tiernan Lynch’s side will be out for revenge on Saturday and go into the game in good form themselves, undefeated in four games.
