Shannon celebrates Leicester and Ipswich promotions

Jim Shannon MP are on a roll as Leicester City and Ipswich Town are both promoted to the Premier Division

Jim Shannon MP and his son Jamie are celebrating Leicester City and Ipswich Town’s Premier League promotions and are in football heaven.

Strangford MP Jim Shannon MP has been a Leicester City football supporter since 1969 following their promotion to the English Premier League.

Strangford MP Jim Shannon, a Leicester supporter, along with his son Jamie, who is an Ipswich supporter – both will be playing in the English Premier Division this season.

A jubilant Jim said: “This is a double celebration as my team Leicester City are Championship winners but my son Jamie is an Ipswich supporter and we both have reason to cheer as Ipswich are also automatically promoted.

For one of us it is possible to be happy, but for my son Jamie it is a double cause of being happy.

“Both father and son are looking forward to playing Premier League football next season from August 2024.

“It confirms that Leicester were champions, but to see NI’s Keiran McKenna as Ipswich Town manager in charge, there will be great celebrations in many homes across Northern Ireland, but especially in Ards and Strangford.”
