Hunter expresses disappointment that Coleraine FC has missed out on Levelling Up fund round

East Derry SDLP MLA Cara Hunter has expressed her disappointment at the news that Coleraine has missed out on this round of the Levelling Up fund.

The East Derry MLA said Coleraine FC put forward a strong and ambitious plan which drew support from across the community and that the club will no doubt be hoping for a better news in the next round.

Ms Hunter added:

“Bobby Farren and the Stadium Development team at Coleraine Football Club should hold their heads high. They have put together an ambitious plan and we will continue to give them our full support in the next round of funding. I’m pleased to read that Ballycastle was successful in its bid for leisure facilities however it was disappointing that the leisure centre in Coleraine missed out. We really need to see this type of transformational funding to ensure residents in East Derry have access to modern facilities.”
