CHRISTMAS CHEER was spread across the soccer world at the Toner's home in Drybridge.

The annual Christmas lights celebration took another twist when Mick Toner, a driving force behind Drogheda Town, and his wife, Margaret, opened their home to Monasterboice club Albion Rovers.

In all, close to 200 people attended on the night with both young and old enchanted by the decorations and lights that lit up a cold, wet December evening. Santa also took some time out of his very busy schedule to arrive on his sleigh before presenting all of the children in attendance with a special gift.

Tea and coffee were in high demand on the night but the weather did nothing to dampen the unique Christmas atmosphere.

Albion Rovers wishes to express the club's gratitude for the wonderful gesture from Mick and Margaret.

The club would also like to thank all the volunteers who marshaled on the night and the parents who ventured out on such a raw evening to support the club.
