The new Danske Bank Premiership season has arrived and as usual your award-winning Glentoran Gazette is here to provide you with all the news, features and stats from around the club.

In this issue we have the latest in our regular look at World Cup winners who have strutted their stuff on the famous hallowed turf of the Oval, with Wolfgang Kleff in the spotlight this time.

We'll also have a feature entitled: And So I Watch You From Afar, on what Saturdays entail for our many ex-pats who can't be there in person to watch their team, and how keeping up-to-date with goings on at the Glens has changed over the years.

There's an interview with the returning David Scullion who admits he has a point to prove at Glentoran; while Alan Gough is the subject of our feature on Glentoran goalkeepers through the years and he reveals that his time at the Oval was the happiest of his footballing career.

In a new regular feature, we will be speaking to a different club legend in each edition and gaining their opinion on a topical issue regarding the local game. First up, goalscoring supremo Gary Blackledge talks about Irish League clubs in Europe.

Our delve into the video archives doesn't go too far as Eddy Patrick chronicles the time between that infamous Irish Cup defeat to Newington, to May's glorious victory over Cliftonville and we have a look at what happened to our legends team on their charity trip away to take on a Scottish Junior FA XI, organised by former striker Derek Cook.

Aside from all that, there's an extended viewpoint from Eddie Patterson on his hopes and expectations for the new season; a word from new skipper Elliott Morris and a look at our opponents Coleraine, plus much more.

The Glentoran Gazette is available from our sellers on the Oval forecourt, online HERE, or via subscription. It's priced at £3.
