For over 130 years, Glenavon have been entertaining the footballing public of Lurgan.

They've been playing at their Mourneview Park home since 1895 and since then they've won three League titles, seven Irish Cups - and not forgetting being Mid-Ulster Cup winners on a record 26 occasions.

We have delved into the archives to find pictures of some of the players who pulled on the blue shirt during the 1960s, 70s and 80s - and yes, that is Jackie Fullerton! He scored 11 goals for the Lurgan Blues in the 1970-71 season.

Take a look and see if you recognise any of your favourite players or any familiar faces.
