Portadown staged a showcase of the club’s cup final kit last night (Thursday) at Shamrock Park.

A special supporters’ evening to launch replica tops has been planned for the next few weeks.

“Following consultation with players, rather than introduce a completely new design of shirt for the final the team has decided they wish to stick with this year’s home shirt,” said a Portadown spokesman. “The shirt will be slightly modified to reflect the special occasion.

“It will be embroidered with the Irish Cup final date and name of both teams in gold thread.

“Replicas will be available to order, plus a special one-off tee-shirt at a cost of less than £20.”


The following supporters’ clubs will be operating transport tomorrow (Saturday) to Portadown’s Danske Bank Premiership game against Warrenpoint Town:
