Dungannon Swifts fans were last week able to get up close and personal with players from the club in the latest ‘Carling Presents an Evening of Legends’ event.

The event had a cracking line-up with current first team manager Dixie Robinson, who has been at the team for over 25 years and current Captain Johnny Montgomery who has played at the club since he was 17.

The club legends were father and son duo Joe and Rodney McAree.

Aisling Duffy Carling Marketing Manager is delighted with the success of the events so far.

“We created the Carling Presents evenings to help the fans get closer to legends and star players from their favourite teams in the Carling Premiership. Institute’s event will mark the end of the first half of the events so we still have six more to go and we are delighted with how well they have been received by fans.

“The evenings have allowed for some fantastic football banter as fans have put the players and legends under the spotlight with every topic covered from best goal or player to career highs and lows to changing room secrets!” said Aisling.

Tickets for these exclusive events are free but places are limited. You can register for Institute’s event or the remaining Legend events taking place at

Fans unable to attend can view all of the action from the night online as well as joining in the debate about your favourite team and reading Jackie Fullerton’s thoughts on the events.
