PORTADOWN supporters will get the opportunity to show appreciation to Ronnie McFall tonight (Friday) against Donegal Celtic.
Saturday’s 2-0 victory at the Oval over Glentoran provided the Ports boss with a memorable anniversary weekend 25 years after taking over at Shamrock Park.
Irish League colleagues past and present served up tributes to the highly-successful manager, with Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson – who narrowly edges out McFall as the longest-serving boss in the United Kingdom – offering a televised message of support.
A Lifetime Achievement award was then presented to McFall on Sunday at the annual UMBRO prize ceremony.
Now McFall can look forward to praise from his own supporters to help mark the milestone.
Another Portadown winner at the UMBRO-organised function was Kevin Braniff, with the striker’s superb form securing the coveted Player of the Year honour in Belfast.
