Special Guests

COLERAINE FC is honoured to several members of the club’s 1973-74 Gibson Cup winning team as Special Guests on Saturday afternoon…

Last Tuesday (April 16) marked the 50th anniversary of the Bannsiders’ sole triumph in the top flight as Ivan Murray’s header sealed a 1-1 draw away to Portadown.

In light of that special achievement under Bertie Peacock’s management, a special day has been planned at The Showgrounds on Saturday.

The players from the title winning team will conduct a Q&A session with Grant Cameron in the Social Club at 2pm about that success and then will be presented to the crowd at half-time.

After the match, the players will enjoy a three-course meal at the Bushtown Hotel along with members of various supporters clubs.

It is only right that we remember and celebrate the achievements of this group of players as they formed the backbone of the teams which brought so much success to the club over a twelve year period from 1965 – including not only the Gibson Cup – but also two Blaxnit All Ireland Cups, four Irish Cups and various Ulster Cups, City Cups, Gold Cups and NW Cups.

Coleraine FC would like to thank the Friends of Coleraine and also the Spirit of 74 Supporters Club for sponsoring the day.
