YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY
SORRY FOLKS – AUCTION HAS NOW CLOSED
In the recent photoshoot we did for the Vienna Cup Shirts we had Elliott Morris and Kym Nelson modelling, Elliott wore the keepers jersey with “Morris” on the back, whilst Kym wore the green outfield strip (pictured right). The name on the back of Kym’s shirt was “Lindsay”, and it carries the number 14.
The Lindsay brothers played for Glentoran in the 1914 Irish Cup Final against Linfield, and scored the winning goals which ultimately took the Glens to Vienna as winners!
Over the next 3 weeks, this shirt will travel ‘Olympic Torch’ style to the homes and changing rooms of Glentoran giants, courtesy of Glentoran Legends manager Philip Stevenson!
Philip has undertaken to have this one-of iconic shirt signed by as many Glentoran Legends as he possibly can, signatures to include the ‘Detroit Cougars’, the 1981 ‘Unbeatables’, and heroes from the last 5 decades of footballing royalty in East Belfast.
The shirt began its journey last Sunday morning as the imperious Raymond ‘Nuts’ Morrison and his team mates became the first legendary signatories. (signatories pictured below, to be updated as they sign).
We are making this shirt available for auction, there is no reserve, and the highest bid at midnight on Friday 31st October will become the proud owner. The lucky winner will be announced at the Vienna Cup Centenary Commemoration at Belfast City Hall the following night, when the oldest living Glentoran player, 94 year old Bertie Wright will append the final signature.
BIDDING WILL BE UPDATED HERE AS AND WHEN THEY ARE MADE, RIGHT UP TO THE CLOSING TIME OF MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY 31ST OCTOBER.
BIDDING NOW STANDS AT : £250.00
