Actor James Nesbitt was back in his native Coleraine on Sunday to perform the opening ceremony at the

SuperCup NI international youth football tournament - formerly known as The Milk Cup.

James said it was an enormous privilege to be given the honour of officially opening the event - which features over 50 teams from all five continents.

"I grew up watching Coleraine here and am still very proudly associated with Coleraine.

"The Milk Cup has been an important part of my life and for everybody in this area," he said.

James also told the crowd in The Showgrounds he would be helping sponsor Coleraine next season.
