Hello and welcome to SportsWatch! Our focus today is the new Ards manager, Mason Breadshaw. We took the time to wander around the streets of Newtownards to ask the fans of Ards what they thought of the appointment of the young manager at their club. Here is what they had said:
Reporter: So, no doubt you’ve heard of the appointment of Mason Bradshaw as the new Ards manager. What are your thoughts on this?
Fan: Well, I don’t know much about him, but I’m always hopeful in Football. I hope he can turn Dixon Park into a fortress and win cups for us, because it’d be a huge leap forward for the club of he can.
Reporter: What do you think of his role at Stirling Albion?
Fan: He got fired, didn’t he? To be honest, I looked at the results. They weren’t that bad! He didn’t do great at first but when he picked up, he even went on a good streak of victories and draws. I don’t think it was a good decision fro, Stirling to fire him, but since Ards picked him up, it turned out good for us!
65% of Ards fans have said they were happy with the decision to take on Bradshaw, whereas 10% said they weren’t happy and 25% said they were neutral.

Ards Season so Far
Ards have been disappointing in this years Dankse Bank Premiership, sitting rock bottom and 4 points off of the team above. A real lack of goals scored by the team too, so Mason Bradshaw will need to improve the teams scoring habits and hopefully keep it tight at the back too. We’ve highlighted 3 players that Bradshaw needs to get firing again, because if these 3 start playing as they can then the Ards will have no problems whatsoever.
Emmet Friars is a 31 year old centre back who’s arguably their best player, a rock at the back who has some great stats for the Irish leagues.
This youngster really does have the potential to do some great things, both at Ards and potentially at bigger clubs in the future. Mason has some great experience at young coaching and we hope he can really kick off David Beck’s career.
Joe McKinney is an attacking midfielder, that can also play striker or in the middle of the park. He’s a great all-rounder and at 23 is young enough to have potential and improve, but old enough to hold his own on the pitch.
Mason rang me up again – much sooner than I hoped – he told he had got a new job as the Ards manager in Ireland, and asked me to look for a place to call home. Again, due to sackings in football and his sacking at Stirling, we decided that we would only be renting in Ireland.
It was much harder to find a property for Mason to move into for the Ireland move than it was for when he moved up to Scotland. Why this was – I still don’t know.
After a few days of searching, I managed to find three properties for Mason which you can see below.
The property is also only a 12 minute drive away from the Ards stadium, where they also train.
