David Healy will play for Glenavon next Wednesday night in their 125th anniversary match against Leeds United at Mourneview Park.
It is a fantastic coup for the Lurgan Blues to have one of Northern Ireland’s greatest players line out in a Glenavon shirt.
David, who played for Leeds during his career in England, will be a massive attraction to the already eagerly awaited game.
“It is fantastic to have David Healy play for us,” said manager Gary Hamilton. “He is a football hero to many Northern Ireland fans and it just adds to what will be a brilliant occasion.
“Having played for Leeds I am sure the fans who come to the game will also show their appreciation to him and for us it is great to see David play his first game for an Irish League club in the colours of Glenavon.”
