Part 2 of the Glendale greats season recalls the very first game Glendale played in Amateur football which was against Feughside on 13th August 1983.
Having just joined the Amateurs Glendale were handed a tricky away tie to fellow newcomers Feughside and overcame their host’s with a powerful display to emerge 5-1 winners. The honour of scoring Glendale’s first goal in Amateur football fell to DAVID MORRISON who picked up the ball on the half way line and beat the offside trap by racing in on goal himself to drive low beyond the keeper. Futher goals from James Brechin and Alistair Haining  saw Glendale’s season up and running with 2 points in the bag.
