Match: Fans keep their distance in the stands as Glenavon clash with Portadown at Mourneview Park in Lurgan

The long wait for the return of the Danske Bank Premiership finally came to an end at the weekend and fans were more than impressed with the Covid-19 restrictions clubs put in place to ensure their safety.

At Mourneview Park in Lurgan approximately 400 Glenavon supporters turned up hoping to see their side kick the season off with all three points against derby rivals Portadown on Saturday evening.

While Matthew Tipton's newly-promoted Ports grabbed a 4-2 win, the home side's fans were just happy to be back supporting their club after some mixed messages from Stormont the previous evening.
