Glenavon will play Championship side Knockbreda in a friendly at Mourneview Park on Tuesday night, kick off 7:30pm. Admission is free.
Glenavon FC is pleased to announce the signing tonight of midfielder Chris Turner. The 30-year old Ballymoney native, who has represented Northern Ireland up to Under-21 level, had been at Scottish SPFL League 2 outfit Cowdenbeath and left by mutual consent in January. Turner started his career at Derby County before returning to Ireland in 2005 to join Sligo Rovers and then Bohemians in 2007. He had a brief spell at Partick Thistle before joining Dundalk in 2009 and moving to Shamrock Rovers in 2010 where he won two LOI titles and a Setanta Cup. In 2012 he returned to Scotland with Dumbarton where he made 83 appearances and scored 8 goals. Before joining Cowdenbeath he spent a short time at Hamilton Accies in 2015.
A number of the club’s promising young players have received well-deserved international call ups in the last few days. Firstly, Harry Robinson has been included in the Northern Ireland Under-18 development squad for the forthcoming friendlies against Denmark next week. Incidentally, Harry is one of only three locally based players in the 18 strong squad.
Conall Young and Jack O’Mahony have been selected for the Northern Ireland Under-18 Schoolboys squad for the Centenary Shield series of matches. The first game is against the Republic of Ireland on the 2nd March. Conall and Jack are joined in the squad by Bobby Burns, currently on loan with Knockbreda.
Supporters are asked to note our mid week friendly will now take place on Thursday evening with Banbridge Town providing the opposition. Kick off time and admission charges remain the same: 7.45pm and £5 Adult and £3 Concession.
