There was late drama once again for the Glens this afternoon, this time a late equaliser from Curtis Allen, back in the starting line up after being dropped to the bench last week, rescuing a point at Drumahoe against Institute.
Glentoran's frustrating start to the Danske Bank Premiership continued with more late drama costing Eddie Patterson's side vital points in last week's draw in Ballymena. Despite the hosts being down to 10 men throughout after an early red card Glentoran struggled to see the game out and Ballymena equalised for 2-2 in the dying moments of the game. Following Linfield's late winner at The Oval in August and Ballinamallard's last ditch equaliser a week after, Glentoran have conceded three costly goals in stoppage time already this season.
At 6.30pm on Monday 18th May 1914, the players and officials of Glentoran Football Club set sail from Larne Harbour on an adventure the like of which one hundred years later remains unsurpassed.

Glentoran's Charity for 2014-14 - Disability Action - are running a Golf Day. All the details are below.
A point away to a team that has topped the Danske Bank Premiership for a number of weeks would normally be looked upon favourably by most teams but for Glentoran it was very much a case of two points that got away.....again.
Former Glentoran goalkeeper, Bertie McGonigal has passed away. Bertie was born in Cookstown in 1942 and played for Chimney Corner before joining Glentoran in 1959.
Bertie spent 3 seasons with the Glens, making 102 appearances. He was in goals when Glentoran won the Gold Cup in 1961, defeating Linfield 4-2 in the final at Solitude.
Glentoran will travel to Ballymena Utd this Saturday looking to pick up consecutive victories for the first time this season. Glentoran defeated Coleraine 2-0 at The Oval last week giving Eddie Patterson's side their first win for four games ending a poor run with draws against Ballinamallard Utd and Portadown whilst losing to Crusaders in between. At this early stage of the season with the table fairly clumped, back to back wins would certainly help the Glens climb the table as quickly as possible.
