A NEW chapter is about to begin at Limepark as the shared space in Armoy is set to host American football for the first time in the coming months – coronavirus pending!

The news comes after the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council agreed a six-month licence agreement with the Armoy Community Association and Causeway Giants American Football Club.

It is a massive boost to the local community as American football becomes the latest sport to be played at the premises.
