An appearance in support of Craigavon youth football by former Manchester United captain Roy Keane is proving a big hit with the public.

Keane has confirmed a visit to Armagh City Hotel on Thursday, February 4.

The fundraiser has been arranged by Ports physio Pat McGibbon to support his Train To Be Smart TTBS Juniors football coaching charity.

“There’s already been huge interest from football fans,” said McGibbon, a former Manchester United player and Northern Ireland international. “But also from people who just want a good night out.

“We’ve had plenty of enquiries from people who want to get tickets as Christmas presents.”
