Nothing stirs the soul, quite like a footballing derby. And this Saturday is the biggest of them all - Coleraine v Ballymena United.

That's the verdict of Northern Ireland actor James Nesbitt.

The Cold Feet and Hobbit star has issued a rallying cry to fans ahead of this weekend's derby at the Coleraine Showgrounds.

"So come join me as we roar on the Bannsiders of Coleraine against the sky blues of Ballymena United," says Nesbitt in a video shared on social media.

"Support your local team and let's make Coleraine great again."
