Worthington Solicitors have been the proud sponsors of Ards Football Club for 16 years running and are delighted to wish them every success for the New Season.
The waiting is now over - on Saturday the Club welcomed Cliftonville for the opening game of the new Danske Bank Premiership season.
Leading the team out for the first time was new captain Emmet Friars, the central defender who joined just a matter of weeks ago from Ballinamallard United. Ards FC started the season with a point after twice coming from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with Cliftonville.
The Second team opened their season on Saturday away to Cliftonville Olympic in the brand new Premiership Development League. The league will directly mirror the Danske Bank Premiership both in terms of make up and fixture schedule, but with the majority of development games scheduled for Wednesday nights. The team this year is being managed by John Convery, who finished last season as a Championship 1 medal winner.
Come on you Ards!
