Institute Football Club would like to congratulate Brigade Cricket Club in becoming T20 All-Ireland champions! During the season in which Wilton Park was designated as the venue for our home fixtures (after the flood in Drumahoe), Brigade very generously offered the club use of their cricket club facilities. To this very day, ‘Stute continue to maintain a great relationship with Brigade – using the cricket club for board meetings, first team meetings, Youth Academy presentations and also supporter club fundraisers.
The final, which was very closely contested, saw Brigade crowned champions by 8 runs. It was a performance that Brigade’s late chairman, and Institute fan, Roy Torrens, would have been proud of! We continue to think of Roy’s close family and friends.
