Video: Ballyclare Comrades football team plan a WW1 Christmas truce re-enactment

Ballyclare Comrades will play a goodwill match against a team from Dorsten, Germany, at Dixon Park on Saturday, December 20 - starting at 2pm. The Co Antrim club was set up when three local survivors of WW1 came up with the idea of setting up a football club as a morale booster for returning veterans. The Rev Robert Bell of Ballyclare Presbyterian Church - an avid supporter of the Comrades - had the original concept for the event. Credit: Belfast Telegraph
