It was great to catch up with recently appointed 1st XV Captain Stewart Martin at our Annual Golf Open at Greenisland Golf Club.
Stewart has been with the club since leaving school (bar a brief stint with QUBRFC). Stewart has been a senior member of the squad for a number of seasons and representative player with various Ulster age groups, Schools and Juniors.
Stewart is heavily involved in life about the club, most recently leading a squad on tour to Edinburgh.
Marty Jnr chatted about his families pride in taking up the role along with the teams ambitions for the season.
Good luck Stewart
