South Antrim MLA Trevor Clarke has called on the Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure to outline the major capital projects funded by her Department in the South Antrim constituency since 2012.

Mr Clarke said: “In 2011-12 Sport NI invested £245,000 in the Burnside Ulster-Scots Society and £233,000 in Crumlin United Football Club and whilst I welcome the fact that both clubs got a considerable amount of investment for their projects, I believe that there is great need for sports facilities, particularly for football and rugby in South Antrim.”

He added: “I encourage her Department to take a more proactive approach to encourage clubs to come forward and make applications for her Department to disperse that money.”

Mr Clarke said he would also encourage local clubs to come forward and apply for funding.
