Ricky Graham has joined Dale Davidson as part of our management team to help guide the club up 1B.
The former Downshire YM, Drumaness Mills, Killyleagh YC and Lower Maze manager, who also assisted at Dromara Village, Dunmurry Rec and Annagh United, has vast experience in football in Northern Ireland and will be looking forward to this new challenge.
Ricky introduced himself to the squad and took training for the first time on Tuesday 24 September at Assumption Grammar School, laying out his intentions for the season ahead and beyond.
United finished 9th last year under Glynn Robinson and were hoping to build on that this time around but early setbacks, late goals and a series of undeserved score lines have hindered that.
However, with the appointment of Ricky, the club is confident of improving recent results and progressing up 1B, particularly after a string of battling performances including Ricky’s first game, away to Bangor Amateurs, on Saturday 28 September.
Everyone at Ballynahinch United would like to wish Ricky all the success during his time here, alongside Dale.
