Yes, a bus to Tobermore has been confirmed. It will leave Mourneview Park at 12pm and will depart about an hour after the final whistle.
Carling are being confirmed as the new sponsors of the IFA Premiership today.
From today’s Belfast Telegraph:
The Irish Football Association will today announce Carling as the new sponsors of their 12-team Premier League.
Coors Brewers and its Carling brand have benefitted from several football sponsorship deals, particularly in England with the Football League to sponsor the Carling Cup.
The IFA’s one-year sponsorship deal with sports retailer JJB Sports ended in May and the football body will be relieved to welcome a new partner on board after months of talks.
It is understood that the deal covers two seasons and will net the IFA in excess of £200,000.
JJB Sports will continue to sponsor the Irish Cup. Carling will hope that the new top flight gets off to a better start than a year ago when the first round of fixtures had to be rearranged due to a referees’ strike.
Rumours that the money spent on Carling in the Victoria are paying for the deal are said to be ‘partly true’. Free samples anyone? 🙂
The club are considering running a bus to the pre-season friendly against Tobermore United following the success of last weekend’s trip to Dunmurry. Anyone interested should again leave their name here or speak to any committee member.
The Victoria Glenavon Supporters Club will be running a bus to Saturday’s game with Dunmurry Rec.
Outsiders are welcome. The bus leaves Mourneview Park at 12pm and the Institute at 12.10pm.
The club will also be staying for an hour after the game.
