Saints renew ties with the Glenmen

THE New Saints will renew acquaintance and friendships with Glentoran when they visit Belfast's Oval, home of last season's Carling Premiership third-placed club, on Saturday June 26 (3.00pm).

In a pre-Europe friendly which maintains the excellent relationship between the two clubs, the Saints return to the Ulster venue for the first time since July 2007, when they lost 3-0, having won 2-1 a year earlier in a game arranged as a testimonial for Glenmen's stalwart Chris Walker.
Barry Hogan and John Toner scored the goals on that occasion, while Glentoran ran out 1-0 winners at Treflan in July 2005, the first occasion that the sides had met, when an Irish invasion on a memorable afternoon swelled the gate to 802.
TNS will be back in the Province a week later to meet the other member of Belfast's 'big two' and Glentoran's greatest rivals Linfield.
