The chance of a lunchtime

Just 10 days remain until Peter Murray is the Guest of Honour at Cliftonville Football Club’s first Matchday Lunch of the season – but there’s still just enough time to secure your seat!

Hosted at Cliftonville Bowling Club ahead of the Danske Bank Premiership encounter with Ards on Saturday, September 29, the occasion – which will get underway at 12.30pm – will comprise a two-course lunch with wine, followed by tea or coffee and will include a complimentary Matchday Magazine and admission to the match.

A gifted midfield talent, Murray made the first of 331 Reds appearances in an Ulster Cup clash with Distillery on August 17, 1985 and, following spells with Portadown and Ballymena United between 1992-1999, brought the curtain down on his playing days when Cliftonville beat Glenavon 2-1 in a League fixture on April 30, 2001.

The final of his 47 goals came in a Windsor Park victory over Linfield a year earlier, however Minto would return to Solitude in a backroom capacity under the management of Tommy Breslin, alongside whom he helped the Club celebrate two Danske Bank Premiership titles, three League Cup crowns and a brace of County Antrim Shield honours.

No stranger to the microphone during that golden era, Peter will be recalling tales from his playing and coaching days when he takes centre stage at our forthcoming Matchday Lunch and we’d love as many supporters as possible there to join us.

Tickets are available for £30, with a £5 discount for Members and Season Ticket holders, and anyone interested in attending is encouraged to make contact with Supporters Liaison Officer Michael Hegney (Phone: 07515506710; Email: as soon as possible to ensure you’re part of what promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable event.
