Portadown-born Glasgow Rangers fan Timothy Webb has ranked the atmosphere inside Windsor Park last week against Greece alongside anything experienced following the Scottish giants.
Timothy was caught up in the sights and sounds generated by the Green And White Army on the night Northern Ireland made history by qualifying for a first European Championships.
The thrills continued past the final whistle and into the post-match celebrations as Timothy managed to get pictures with Northern Ireland’s Stuart Dallas and boxing champion Carl Frampton.
“It was like an Old Firm game in Glasgow in terms of the noise and singing from the first minute to the very end,” said Timothy. “I had been to the Hungary game before and met Carl Frampton that night too.
“He is so easy to talk to and a real gentleman.
“Stuart’s brother, Marcus, plays football for Loughgall in the Irish League and would travel over to Scotland with me as part of the County Armagh Glasgow Rangers Supporters’ Clubs.
“Stuart was celebrating on the pitch and I shouted over would he mind a pic.
“He probably did not hear me when I mentioned Marcus due to the noise from the fans but was happy to pose.”
