New Umbro Infant Home Shirt for the 2019/20 Season. Returning Home VIII.XX.MCMXLIX
For almost three decades in the first half of the twentieth century, Glentoran Football Club adopted a very distinctive style of playing kit.
The three-block colours of red green and black would be worn by heroes of the east, such as Geary, Roberts, McCarthy, Hughes, Lowry, Ewing, Blanchflower and Bingham. Most significantly though, this was the style of shirt chosen by the Glens to herald their return to the Oval in August 1949 after eight arduous years in exile.
August 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of Glentoran returning home to the Oval. In a fitting tribute to those who rebuilt the club from the ashes, brick by brick, Glentoran's home kit for the 2019/20 season will mirror the design of that famous old jersey.
