Glentoran and Portadown met at the Oval this evening in the Danske Bank Premiership. As has become the norm over the past number of years it was a bruising, physical encounter with no quarter asked or given.
Glentoran BU Ladies 2-1 victory over Crusaders Strikers saw them with the Concentrix Premier League with a game to spare.
With two games remaining Glentoran BU Ladies required one win to clinch the title and on Monday evening they secured the title in a tense game at the Oval.
The game was scoreless at the interval but a magnificent strike from Demi Vance put the home side in front early in the second half. An unfortunate own goal saw Glentoran BU double their advantage and they held on to be crowned champions despite a stoppage time penalty from Danielle McDowell.
Mark Clarke's proposed loan move to Knockbreda will not now go ahead as terms were not agreed prior to the transfer dealine.
Mark will remain at the Oval.
Glentoran travelled to Seaview on Saturday off the back of a 2-1 victory at Moyola Park in the League Cup on Monday night however any hopes of kicking on from that win were well and truly misplaced as the Glens were flattered by the 1-0 reverse by full-time.
It has been a frustrating start to the season for Glentoran. Performances have been decent despite the squad being limited and we have played some very encouraging football. An excellent display to draw at the defending champions Cliftonville on the opening day and a solid victory over Warrenpoint made for an encouraging start. However it was our other two fixtures that have caused such frustration.
As in previous years we are offering supporters and supporters clubs the opportunity to sponsor a players shirt for the 2014/15season.
The cost of this sponsorship is £150.

Goals from Jordan Stewart and Stephen McAlorum helped Glentoran defeat Moyola Park 2-1 this evening. Whilst Glentoran created numerous chances throughout the 90 minutes their inability to kill off the home side left the travelling supporters on edge right until the final whistle.
