As part of the launch, Ginsters challenged some young aspiring players to a penalty kick competition, with Michael offering some ‘proper tips’ to each player.  Michael was also on hand to spot the best penalty of the day, awarding local Lisburn Rangers player, Josh Smyth aged nine, with an autographed NI shirt.
