Triangle’s 65th birthday

The Triangle Glenavon Supporters Club celebrates its 65th birthday next week.

The first meeting was held on October 14, 1949 with 19 members present, the nucleus being members of Lurgan Boys Club, winners of the Irish Junior Cup in 1946. These included their last surviving member Sam Brown (still attending games), as well as the late Noel Uprichard who served as treasurer for over 50 years.

The Triangle is the largest of all the GFC Supporters Clubs with 130 members, and runs a bus to every away game. It is estimated that since inception, the Triangle has contributed around £300,000 to the Glenavon coffers, as well as around £40,000 to local charities.

Glenavon Academy are holding a two day Halloween Soccer Camp on Thursday, Oct 30 and Friday, Oct 31.

It is for children aged from 5 to 14 and costs £5 per child per day. It is being held at the 3G facilities at St. Peter’s. For further details contact Chris on 07876535142 .
