It’s a family affair.
The history of club rugby in Ulster was changed in Ballyclare on Saturday, when Ballyclare RFC welcomed Inishowen RFC to the Cloughan for the first time in a competitive fixture. Nothing ground breaking in a Junior 5 league game I hear you say. However, did you know that the current Ballyclare RFC President Alistair Lindsay and Inishowen RFC President, Ann Scott, are brother and sister?
A historic event with two siblings being Presidents of opposing rugby clubs in the same season. Alistair and Ann continue a proud family history in Ulster Rugby as their father was the late Tommy Lindsay. Tommy Lindsay was a stalwart of Ulster club rugby for many years, a two time President of Ballyclare RFC (1960-61 and 1980-81) and had the honour of being Ulster Branch President (1982-83). Tommy was instrumental in the foundation of Inishowen RFC in 1972 and was awarded the prestigious “Mr Boots” award in 1988 for his contribution to junior rugby in Ulster.
Family bragging rights stayed with Alistair as Ballyclare 4’s won the encounter 29-7.
