The second Danske Bank Half Time Challenge of the season took place at the Glentoran v Cliftonville match at The Oval and it turned out to be a very happy Christmas for this month’s winners!
Andrew Miller and his son Paul Miller (10) took to the pitch in front of nearly 1700 fans to take on the Danske Bank Premiership Half Time Challenge and delighted the support by scoring three times and taking home the top prize of £500!
Miller, from County Down, said “Thanks to Danske Bank and the NI Football League for a great afternoon, two children will now have an extra special Christmas!”
His son Paul added; “It was an amazing experience to be on the pitch and was the best fun I’ve ever had!”
