David Miskelly’s testimonial celebrations will feature a fun day at Comber Rec on Saturday, July 30.

The packed programme has been designed to highlight the long-serving goalkeeper’s links to Portadown and Comber Rec.

The fun day will feature friendly games between select sides representing Portadown and Comber Rec.

Other highlights on the schedule include a morning youth competition.

Grassroots sides on board from Portadown Youth, Comber Rec, Ridgeway Rovers, Easter Coast Strikers and Dungoyne Boys will take part at underage level.

Entertainment is also expected to feature a barbecue, bouncy castle, ice cream van, skills challenges, live music, DJ set and bar from 9.30 to late.
