With Executive Covid-19 restrictions partially eased, it was back to business on Tuesday for the Glens Academy Under 12s boys' team as they joined Stephen Lowry for a training session at the Hanwood Centre.

Glentoran Gazette contributor and former editor, John Grayden, first saw the Glens play in May, 1959. In this series he picks imaginary sides from throughout the years in a random selection of categories. A few are factual while most are subjective and by no means definitive. While he has seen the majority of the players in action, a few from other eras are included because of their contributions to the club’s history.

This is the fifth in a series of interviews with former Glentoran players and managers where they talk about a photograph that means a lot to them. Some will be reproduced from a series written by Brian McClelland for the Glentoran Gazette in the mid-1990s with other, newer stories we will be writing over the next few weeks. This one was published in the Gazette when Brian spoke to the late Walter Bruce, one of Glentoran's greatest servant of the 1950s, 60s and early 70s.
