Special Anniversary Edition of the Gazette

Wed, 11/10/2017 - 19:56

To mark the 40th anniversary of our European Cup tie against Juventus a special edition of the Glentoran Gazette goes on sale at our game against Cliftonville on Saturday.  Our design wizard Clifford Logan has replicated the cover of the Gazette from that night back in 1977 and in the same vein the Bard of Ballymacarrett, Sam Robinson, tells the first part of his tale of reuniting one of those 1970s heroes, Rab McCreery, with his shirt from that memorable night.

And there's lots more.  In the week that Michael O'Neill went one step closer to becoming the third former Glentoran player to manage Northern Ireland in the World Cup finals, Brian McClelland has the first part of his story on the first one to do it, Peter Doherty, Roy Downes reveals his personal connection to North Korea and there's all the usual news, views, interviews, photo action and stats.  This one could be a bit of a collectors' item so make sure you get your copy!
