Mark McAuley, leader of Glarryford YFC, 2017-18 Club of the Year, uses his dramatic talents in “Pull the Other One” to play the part of Ballymena man, Albert Perkins.

His loving wife, Muriel, is played by Ashleigh Harbinson. Albert’s overbearing mother-in-law, Mrs Boadicea Heppinstall (Sharon McConnell), is a frequent, if not always welcome, visitor.
