This October, as Glentoran FC prepares to celebrate the institution’s 140th year of playing football east of the Lagan, the story of one of the club’s finest hours, the 1914 winning of the Vienna Cup in Austria is being made into a stage play. ‘One Saturday before the War’ opens on October 6th in the Sanctuary Theatre on Castlereagh Street in the heart of east Belfast.

The play, produced by the Bright Umbrella Theatre Company, follows the Glens as they traverse Europe on the adventure of a lifetime, with the spectre of the war to end all wars looming large on the horizon.
