Progress for football

On Saturday Linfield won the Irish Cup in front of a sell-out crowd and swept the local trophies with only two defeats in the entire season (Yes I am a blues fan). Whatever the movable row that is the IFA leadership, the football on the pitch seems to be improving as more teams continue the transition from part-time to full-time professional. Also the BBC and IFA have announced a deal for NI home games in the European qualifiers and friendlies to be televised.
