OWN a piece of history by purchasing your very own brick on the Friends Foundation Wall at the Coleraine Showgrounds…
Have your name or family message in place at The Showgrounds for a long-lasting place in Coleraine Football Club’s history.
The initiative was started by the Friends of Coleraine Facebook page and there has been plenty of interest so far.
Individuals, groups, businesses – all can sponsor a brick for a new wall which will be constructed in the car park at The Showgrounds.
Each brick will contain the sponsor’s name and a personalised message and will become part of the club’s history moving forward.
It’s a fundraising initiative which has been deployed by other sporting clubs and organisations and, already, it appears as if Coleraine’s version is proving popular.
“The response has been fantastic,” said Chris Gray of the Friends of Coleraine group.
“This is a first for Irish League clubs and is therefore a completely new concept.
“The wall was launched straight after the Warrenpoint game recently and we were inundated with enquiries from all over the world.
“As I say, it’s been a great response and we’ve only started,” he added.
The wall, when ready for construction, will be built in front of the tunnel area at Ballycastle Road so that as many people as possible can see it when they enter the ground.
“Gerald Lamont of Lamont Fireplaces in Coleraine is providing the marble for the wall and has already been out to see the location,” continued Chris.
“At this minute, we’re looking to sell as many as we can.
“The wall in question can hold upwards of 800 to 1,000 bricks.
“It’s a long term project with the first batch of bricks probably going up in the spring time when the weather’s better.”
