Local Northern Ireland supporters sit to welcome new IFA chief executive

FIRST Royal Northern Ireland Supporters look forward to the visit of new IFA chief executive Patrick Nelson at their monthly meeting this Thursday evening.

Patrick took over from Howard Wells in August of last year. Prior to his appointment, he held the post of Chief executive at Macclesfield Town, with experience also at Notts County.

With the Euro 2012 qualifying draw due to take place on 7th February, this should prove an interesting visit for club members, giving them an opportunity to hear how the IFA intend to move forward and address the current issues affecting the Northern Ireland team.

The club meets this Thursday, 4th February at 8pm in the Royal Hotel.
