Well done H&W Welders
Lord Browne MLA has congratulated East Belfast football club Harland & Wolff Welders on winning the Steel & Sons Cup at Seaview Park.
Lord Browne said: “On Monday afternoon I joined over a thousand people from east Belfast at a packed Seaview Park to watch the Harland & Wolff Welders bring the Steel & Sons Cup back to east Belfast.”
He said congratulations must go to the Welders for their “impressive display and well deserved 3-1 victory” over Knockbreda.
“This is the first time in the club’s history that they have won the cup, and marks the culmination of a 45 year long campaign to bring the trophy to Dee Street.”
Lord Browne added: “The Welders have set a fine example for all amateur sports clubs by the way in which they conducted their ultimately triumphant cup campaign, and their 10-0 second round victory over Bangor Amateurs will not soon be forgotten.
“The people of east Belfast have good reason to be proud of their local football clubs, and the Welders have demonstrated that east Belfast has a strong presence at every level of the local game.”
