In Malcolm Brodieís report from the away leg of the European Cup Winnerís Cup quarter-final in Monchengladbach in March 1974 he recounts that Glentoran played out the game in a red shirt with a green and black stripe. One photograph emerged recently of a Glentoran shirt from the mid-seventies matching that description we can only assume that this is in fact the shirt as memories of the game itself were overshadowed by the passing of Roy Stewart and indeed during the match the referee stopped the game as a mark of respect for Roy. This was a tradition at European games rather than holding a minutes silence before the game. For the record the match itself ended with a 5-0 victory to the Germans. One playerís shirt from the game still exists.
