Ballyclare Comrades will take on Eddie Patterson’s Glentoran at Dixon Park tonight (July 17).

The Belfast side are in town to open Ballyclare Comrades’ pre-season friendly programme (kick-off 7:45pm).

The Reds were due to entertain local rivals Larne, but this one has been rescheduled for Thursday evening (July 19), also at Dixon Park.

Ballyclare chairman Trevor McCann said: “When we got the opportunity to host Glentoran, I immediately contacted Larne officials about a possible change of date, and I am deeply indebted to them for accommodating us so willingly.

“We already have all-Ireland champions, Crusaders, as well as Ballymena United coming to Ballyclare, so we regard it as a great honour to have three Premier League sides included in our programme.”
