Saturday, April 23, 2005 is a date celebrated by every Glentoran fan.
It was a landmark day in Irish League football because a dramatic last-gasp victory over cross-town rivals Linfield was the catalyst for the Gibson Cup returning to The Oval.
Striker Chris Morgan grabbed the late winner which spawned the Morgan Day title. He may have had a mediocre game by his own high standards, but that last-minute flick catapulted him into the Glens' Hall of Fame.
The same couldn't be said about the scorer of the first goal.
Because of the significance and choreography of Morgan's effort, most people tend to forget it was Stephen Parkhouse who got the party up and running at the jam-packed east Belfast venue.
Having arrived from Institute the previous summer, Parkhouse emerged from a traumatic opening nine months at The Oval to finally endear himself to the home fans with that crucial opener.
"Everyone remembers Chris for his goal, and rightly so," says Parkhouse.
"I suppose if you ask people who scored the first goal, a lot of them wouldn't even remember.
"It was strange because I didn't even think I was in the team. On the Thursday night, the gaffer (Roy Coyle) named the side. Normally he started from the back, naming the goalkeeper and then the back four and so on.
"For some reason, he did it from front. When he said that Michael (Halliday) and Chris (Morgan) would be up front, my heart sank. I was gutted. I thought I was for the bench.
"After naming the two wide players, he then said that (Gavin) Melaugh and Parky would be in the centre of midfield. I was gobsmacked. I could see a few of the senior players raising their eyebrows.
"It was probably one of the biggest games the club had played for years because we needed to win as Linfield were at the top with a better goal difference. That's why I joined the Glens, I wanted to be involved in games like that.
"Coyler explained the role to me - he wanted me to become a third striker when we had the ball, but then wanted me to mix it with Paul McAreavey when we hadn't the ball. To be honest, it was the first time I'd ever played in midfield, but I relished the challenge.
"I think we deserved the victory based on the season we had as a group.
"I still get asked about Morgan Day, I've great memories of the occasion. That match, however, wasn't a title decider because we had to beat Crusaders the following week to guarantee us the title, which we duly did."
It was the highlight of Stephen's 18 months at The Oval, although he thought his stay would have lasted much longer.
"I had a few other options on the table because Linfield and Portadown were interested in me," he recalls.
"But when I met Stafford Reynolds and Roy Coyle up in Londonderry, my mind was made up.
"Back then, there were no football agents, so I brought Johnny 'Jobby' Crossan with me. As a 22-year-old, I wouldn't have felt comfortable negotiating a financial deal, so I thought I needed an experienced head.
"Coyler was probably a little bit intimidating. He told me about the things he had won and the things he wanted to win. I was delighted to sign. Shaun Holmes, Gavin Melaugh and Tommy McCallion were already at the club, we had a great time travelling up and down."
But things didn't go quite to plan, both off and on the pitch, for Stephen when he put pen to paper in June 2004.
He adds: "It started so well as we got through a round in the UEFA Cup. We also had a few tough pre-season games lined up against Crystal Palace, MK Dons and Scottish club St Johnstone.
"In fact, after the game against Palace, I was approached by a Glentoran director, asking if I had an agent because there was the possibility of me moving in a £150,000 deal, even though I'd played only four or five games. I told the official I'd be up for it. I left it to the club to do the negotiating.
"Disaster struck the following week as I broke my leg in a game against Omagh Town. But it was only the start of a traumatic period. My mother then fell ill and was moved into the City Hospital in Belfast. With me being out of the game, it gave me the chance to spend a bit of time with her.
"She was subsequently moved to the Foyle Hospice. I must say, Roy Coyle was great with me, telling me to take all the time I needed. When I returned (to football), mum insisted I attended training instead of visiting her on Tuesday, but when I had 20 missed calls one night, I feared the worst.
"When I telephoned back, God rest him, Bishop Daly answered. Mum had gone into a coma and she passed away the next day."
After making his Glentoran exit, Stephen's football journey turned full circle when he teamed with Paul Kee at Limavady United in January 2006.
"Paul got wind that I was being released and it was a safe move for me," he explains.
"After the time I had with the bad injury, missing out on a move to England and then losing my mum, it was about being happy and playing regularly again.
"John 'Bugsy' Cunningham was also at Limavady. He and Paul have played a big role in my life and are two of the best coaches I've worked for."
It was Kee who also resurrected Stephen's career a few years earlier.
After returning home from Manchester City, he signed for his home club Derry City but was on the verge of packing the game in after becoming disillusioned.
"I moved over to Manchester City when I was 16," remembers Stephen.
"I had a few other options; Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Celtic. But my mate Shaun Holmes was at City, so it was a no-brainer for me.
"It was also a big relief for my family because they knew I was going over to live with Shaun. City were not as big then as they are now. In saying that, they were getting crowds of 28,000 or 30,000. Joe Royle was manager of the first team before Frank Clarke took over.
"As far as the youth set-up was involved, I enjoyed it. I remember early days, the coaches sat us all down as a group to say that maybe one of us would make it. That was daunting to hear. But looking back, they were right.
"I worked my way up to the reserves, managed by former Scotland midfielder Asa Hartford. He took to me after him and I won a head-tennis tournament - 'You'll do me, son', he said. Even though I would still be playing for the Under-19s, he would tell me to turn up for the reserves.
"The next day, my (U19) coach would give me a right earful, but I really enjoyed it at City. Probably, my only regret was not taking up the offer of trials with Preston or Stockport County when I was released."
Instead, Stephen opted to return home to sign for Derry.
He adds: "Having played in England, my mindset was I'd be going straight into the first team - how wrong was I? That certainly wasn't the case as Liam Coyle and Gary Beckett were our main strikers.
"I must say I still have a great deal of sympathy for any young player coming home from England or Scotland. To be honest, I was on the verge of packing it all in - I became really disillusioned.
"I had gone from training every day to twice a week. I was the type of person that needed to be training every day."
It was then that Kee came to his rescue, luring Stephen to Institute on a loan basis.
"It was a big turning point for me," he says.
"Although Institute were a Championship side, Paul had a really good thing going. I initially went for a few months, but I asked Derry City for my release as I wanted to make it a permanent arrangement.
"Paul did a fantastic job. He didn't get the credit he deserved. I had two great years at Drumahoe, which culminated in the club gaining promotion to the Premier League."
