THE Neilly family have strong Ballymena and Sports Bond connections. Brothers Stephen and Alastair had a Sports Bond agency when they ran The Imperial Bar for many years.
Nowadays brother Alec and son Peter attend most Ballymena United home matches and both are Sports Bond members who pay by Standing order. They joined through direct canvassing over a year ago. When they were canvassed at their home jn Gracehill. This week Alec Neilly (A5886) enjoyed his first £50 major win. Congratulations to Alec, it took a while but you got there.

At Charlie's another major £50 win for Kate Tuff (A5254). Kate from Broughshane has been a previous winner and was our only lady winner this week.

The two £10 minor winners this week both come from the same area. In Cloughmills William Evans (A7761) was a winner on the agency of Robert Logan while down the road Davy McAuley (A1908) was a winner again. So this week saw no winners from the Ballymena Town area.

A jackpot of £400 is on offer this week when no winner was found with the numbers 15, 18, 21, and 22.

If you wish to join Sports Bond and pay by standing order, as many are now choosing, ring 07831 803970.

First Score
At Solitude in the Co Antrim Shield fixture against Newington the winning first score was recorded on 45 mins and the holder of that card was Management Committee member and Development Committee member Ivan Russell who collected £30. Thanks to the travelling supporters for their contribution. They were a credit to the club.

The next first score will be at Clandeboye Park for the League Cup fixture with Ards on Wednesday evening. See you all there.
