Ards CC Celebrate Martyn Irvine This Friday

There are very few clubs in Ireland who can boast of producing a world champion at elite level but Ards CC in County Down can certainly lay claim to that honour. It is now approaching the first anniversary of Martyn Irvine’s spectacular victory in the Scratch event at the World Track Championships held in Minsk, Belarus.  Irvine achieved this win just one hour after winning a silver medal in the individual pursuit discipline.

To mark the occasion Ards CC are hosting a social evening in the Web Theatre at 49 North Street, Newtownards this Friday evening (28th February) during which the videos of Martyn’s superb performances will be shown on the big screen. The club will also present specially designed Ards CC jerseys featuring the famed Rainbow Rings to Martyn’s family.

The evening costs £10 and kicks off at 7-30.  Those wishing to come along should confirm their attendance by telephoning Billy Kirk at 028 91228301.
