With the Itish Cup now safely back at the Oval, it was nicely appropriate that last night the Glentoran Legends squad and their manager Philip Stevenson visited the stadium last night for a training session and to meet Mick McDermott and the 2020 squad. Including four title winning captains - Rab McCreery, Jim Cleary, John Devine and Paul Leeman, it's scary to imagine how many winners medals these guys have between them but great to know the current lads have started on the path to emulating them.
Irish Cup winner in 1973 and captain of the 1981 "invincibles" - Rab McCreery
Double title winner, 5 Irish Cups and for many the greatest Glentoran player they've seen - Jimmy Cleary
Our most recent title winning skipper, with 4 league medals and 4 Irish Cups - Paul Leeman
Double title winner as a Glens player and a truly legendary manager - Roy Coyle
Uniquely a title winner for Glentoran in three separate decades, plus four Irish Cups - Billy Caskey
