With Glenavon taking on Ballymena United in a game which will have big consequences in the race for the final play-off place, this week’s Retro Match comes from the early 1990s and a past meeting of the two sides.

This game is worth watching for the commentary along as United’s defending is ripped to shreds by the reporter. You just don’t hear that these days!

It also features Philip Burn playing for the Lurgan Blues against the Braidmen, although the former Leicester City and Raith Rovers man would go on to sign for the Sky Blues and make 130 appearances for the Sky Blues, where he is fondly remembered.

Philip sadly passed away in 2012, aged 43.
