Have you ever dreamed of playing at the Oval under the floodlights?

Have you ever dreamed of playing at the Oval under the floodlights? Or even better, being on the same pitch as Glentoran legends such as Gary Blackledge,  Billy Caskey, Jimmy Cleary, Barney Bowers and such like? Well, now we could make your dreams come true.

We are trying to raise much needed funds for first team expenses and had a brain storming session about what we could do. This was the first idea to come to fruition and we are looking for 22 players to play on Friday 22nd November against the Glentoran Legends at the Oval. The Legends are giving up their time, as they always do to play for the Glentoran Legends, free of charge so we can play this game.

The "Fans" team will be managed by Roy Coyle and will be on a first come first served basis. The cost will be £90 per player. This includes your very own unique Glentoran jersey that you will wear on the night, to take home with you. All profits from the Game and the evening will be given directly towards 1st Team Expenses.

For further information please contact Simon Kitchen by email on  Players will only be confirmed when they pay in full. If you are interested in playing, please contact Simon, saying what position you would prefer and what number on your personal jersey you would like (again first come first served).

We will also have the Legends in the Premier Lounge after the game and everyone is welcome.

We would like to thank in advance all the Legends, Philip Stevenson and the Glentoran Board for permission to play this game during the season.

We are also looking for a sponsor for the game. They will receives exposure on the front of the jersey and also around the pitch for the rest of the season. If anyone knows of any businesses that may be interested, again, please contact Simon on the email above.
