The doors to the Cliftonville Football Club Hall of Fame will reopen this Friday night.
Named in honour of founding father John McCredy McAlery, the Hall of Fame was established to celebrate and highlight the achievements of our greatest ever players, Managers, coaches, ancillary staff, dedicated boardroom personnel and various off-field servants, with the latest inductee set to be honoured on Friday night.
The identity of this week’s addition will remain a strict secret until the moment their entrance is announced, however they are assured to find themselves in the most esteemed – if not necessarily plentiful – company.
For just two people currently hold Cliftonville Hall of Fame status, with former skipper Chris Scannell joining the eponymous McAlery in the distinguished assembly when he was inducted following the last of his 456 appearances for Ireland’s Oldest Football Club five years ago.
Ahead of his celebrated inauguration in 2014, supporters had been invited to suggest their own nominations for the accolade and that influential input has been both retained and considered ahead of this week’s unveiling.
Set to be announced as part of the Club’s Awards ceremony – which will take place during Ryan Catney’s Testimonial Dinner on Friday night – you can ensure you’re among the first to find out by booking your seat for the occasion at The Devenish Complex right now.
A small number of tickets remain available and these can be secured from Kevin Crossan and Michael Hegney at a cost of £40 per person (or £375 for a table of 10) and, with proceeds donated to Ryan Catney’s Testimonial Fund, anyone interested in joining us encouraged to confirm their attendance as soon as possible.
