Jonathan Boxill speaking with Joel Neill, A View From The Bridge, on his return to Belfast: “I kept in touch with Steve Thornton, Adam Keefe and some of the team following my two seasons in Belfast and graduating from Ulster University.

“People know how I feel about the city and I am very happy to be back.

“Preparations are well underway for the new season and, thanks to Colin Shields, I have been training hard for 2018/19 - around my wedding preparations of course.

“I loved my time in Belfast, the fanbase is fantastic.

“I am excited to get here in early August and get the ball rolling.”
