News Letter’s ‘Ulster Saturday Night’ brings you weekend sport first

THE Ballymena Times’ sister paper the News Letter has launched its new sports section - ULSTER SATURDAY NIGHT - available exclusively to News Letter tablet App readers.

The new sports supplement, ULSTER SATURDAY NIGHT, gave a you a comprehensive round-up of Saturday’s main action both locally and nationally in a bumper 16-page package.

ULSTER SATURDAY NIGHT is that something extra for the weekend which brings you the sporting review in one super package.

The first edition of ULSTER SATURDAY NIGHT focused on Ulster’s final Heineken Cup Pool Four match in France against Castres, as well as special features on Dungannon Swifts’ Emmet Friars and Belfast Giants’ Graeme Walton - and there was lots lots more.

News Letter Sports Editor, Richard Mulligan, said: “Like everything new, our first edition was missing some of our planned regular features, mainly due to the winter weather and a couple of teething problems

“However, the 16 page package delivered by the team certainly struck the right chord.

“News Letter Sport prides itself on having quality content and a strong look to our sports sections, whether it is our daily coverage, special supplements such as Sports Ulster, Total Rugby and Keep ‘Er Lit.

“Ulster Saturday Night maintains this, indeed enhances it, but more importantly it now offers people with the opportunity of getting all their sport in one smart package than having to trawl through hyperspace.

“No longer can others say ‘read it first’ on a Sunday, because it is more than likely in Ulster Saturday Night now.”

Richard added: “We are bringing in a couple more features in week two (January 26) which will become regular to Ulster Saturday Night. And we will continually be developing things as we continue to make progress.”
