The first prolific Glentoran shirt. The radical yoke styling was notably worn by Bradford City when they won the FA Cup in 1911. Pictures do show a Glentoran Second XI wearing this style in 1900/01 however the shirt would reappear again several years later. Glentoran would have success in this kit lifting the Irish League title in 1912/13, before defeating arch rivals Linfield in the 1914 Irish Cup Final on the 28th March at Grosvenor Park. The City Cup would arrive in the trophy cabinet at the Oval as well in that year. As Irish Cup winners, Glentoran received an invite from the Austrian FA to participate in a tournament involving a number of European sides in the spring of 1914 in Germany, Prague, Bratislava and Vienna. At the Hohe Warte Stadium in Vienna on 30th May 1914 the Glens defeated a Vienna select XI to win the Vienna Cup. World War I was only months away.
