IT was the night Showgrounds favourite Allan Jenkins was remembered for his six years top class service at Ballymena United!
The Des Allen Suite was packed with supporters who wanted to say a fond farewell to the Scot who won the hearts of everyone during his time at United.
Ex-United manager, Roy Walker, the man who signed Jenkins was one of many paying tribute to the likeable Jenkins.
Jenkins' proud mother Stella, father Allan Senior, and daughter Macie, listened as speaker after speaker praised his input at United.
Supporters Clubs - Paramount, Spirit of '89, Seven Towers, Paradise, and Ballymoney/Rasharkin/Finvoy all made presentations to 36-year-old Jenkins.
Compere Jackie Fullerton explained that the evening was the first such one held to honour a player whose contribution to the club deserved to be recognised.
