Good relationship: Coleraine ace Stewart Nixon with boss Oran Kearney

Coleraine attacker Stewart Nixon is hoping to do Jerry Thompson proud after switching to the No.21 shirt for the upcoming campaign.

The pair played together at Carrick Rangers before the football community mourned the death of Thompson in December 2019.

As a mark of respect to his former team-mate, Nixon, who joined Coleraine in the January transfer window, selected Thompson's former shirt number of 21 for the upcoming season.
