Glenavon’s application for their UEFA club licence and Premiership licence for 2016-17 has been granted.

The news was revealed on Tuesday following a meeting of the Licensing Committee on Monday night. In their confirmation, the committee said Glenavon had met all the required standards for both licenses.

“The exacting work put into obtaining these licenses by Gerry Marks and Frazer Follis is considerable and extremely time consuming. The board owes both of them a very well deserved vote of thanks and congratulations,” said Glenavon chairman Adrian Teer.Glenavon Ground-1
