Golf Classic 2017

The Glenavon Golf Classic returned on Friday 19th May for the first time since 2014 with Major Freight Services on board as the main sponsor.

Lurgan Golf Club kindly hosted the event and it was a great success with 47 partaking in the day’s golf followed by for a delicious 2 course meal in the clubhouse.

The main prizes were awarded on a team basis, with the team containing former Glenavon players Colin Crawford & Alex Denver pipping the team, which contained former Portadown and current Glentoran left-back Ross Redman, to first prize.

A special thanks goes to Wilson Collins & Paul Best from Lurgan Golf Club for all their work in organising the golf, Ian Irwin who helped organise sponsors and Andy Heasley who provided the evening entertainment.

Kilmartin and Elebert Leave Glenavon

ANDY KILMARTIN and DAVID ELEBERT have turned down the offer of new one-year contracts with Glenavon. Both players have now indicated their intention to leave Mourneview Park.

Andy, who turns 35 during next season, has been offered a two year deal with improved terms at another club and for family reasons has decided to accept the financial package on offer.

Meantime David, 32, has declined an appearance-related contract and will seek to continue his involvement in the game elsewhere.

It has been club policy under Gary Hamilton not to offer players over 32 years of age more than a one year contract.

Gary said today “I wish to thank Andy and Dave for their services to the club. In my opinion they were two of the best pros I have ever worked with, both in my playing and management days. I’m gutted to lose the two of them but understand and respect their reasons and wish them all the best in the future. They will always be welcomed back to Mourneview.”
