Ballinamallard United recorded their first ever victory at the Oval against a lacklustre Glens this afternoon. Eddie Patterson was without several defenders, with Barry Holland, Jay Magee and Calum Birney all on the injured list, but there was little excuse for a performance which saw few, if any, Glentoran players come out of the game with any credit.
September 200 Club Draw
Glentoran are in contention to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season as they host Ballinamallard United tomorrow.
The East Belfast side came from behind twice to seal a 2-4 victory at Dungannon last week, collecting their first away win in the process.
David Armstrong and Andrew Mitchell put the Swifts ahead but the Glens levelled through Calum Birney and Steven Gordon. It was Birney who scored again to put the Glens in front for the first time in the game, before Curtis Allen’s late effort cemented the win.

The Board of Directors wish to thank the Hillfoot GSC on behalf of the club for their donation. Club Chairman Stephen Henderson said "The Hillfoot GSC's donation is a welcome boost to the club as we continue our financial rehabilitation off the pitch. The fact that they have increased the amount this year, over and above their regular and generous donations from previous years, is a testament to the hard work and fundraising efforts of these Glenmen and women"
Glentoran return to Premiership action tomorrow as they travel to Dungannon Swifts to put behind a miserable mid-week Toal's Senior Shield display.
The Glens were dumped out of the Toal's Senior Shield on Tuesday night with a first round defeat to fellow East Belfast outfit H&W Welders, losing 4-3 in penalties after the game ended goalless.
Glentoran’s poor start to the season continued as they crashed out of the Toals Senior Shield at the first hurdle. Their tie against H&W Welders finished scoreless after extra time and it was the Welders who went into the quarter-final draw with a 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory. In truth it was no more than Glentoran deserved with Michael Dougherty having perhaps his easiest ever night between the posts at the Oval.
