“I have been coming down to Comber Rec since I was four years old so, when planning this testimonial year, always wanted to give something back to the place I live,” said Miskelly following his opening testimonial event at Comber Rec. “But we will be running similar events across the year.

“I don’t see myself playing anywhere else so will be finishing my career with Portadown I would think.

“I imagine I will be at Portadown until I have to finish playing.

“The testimonial is by the side, the most improtant thing is we keep Portadown in this division.

“We are a Premiership club and a big club.

“The testimonial is a nice way for me to give my respect to the fans and, hopefully, give everyone a good time.”
