Ten years ago Glentoran travelled to Seaview and clinched the league title with a 2-nil victory (McCallion & Lockhart) over Crusaders. Today the roles were reversed with the Shore Road side finally claiming the Danske Bank Premiership crown thanks to goals from Caddell and Heatley. Congratulations from everyone at Glentoran to Crusaders FC, Danske Bank Premiership champions 2014-15.
For their penultimate Danske Bank Premiership game of the 2014-15 season, Glentoran make the short journey across Belfast to Seaview, home of the champions elect, Crusaders.
Last Saturday in the McLean’s Suite at the Oval, Glentoran supporters, members of the Colrain family, players from the ‘Cougars’ era and other Glentoran legends joined Philip Stevenson and his family for the launch of Philip’s long awaited book – John Colrain-A Life in Football.
Glentoran Chairman, Stephen Henderson and manager, Eddie Patterson were presented with a cheque for £700 by the Raven Glentoran Supporters Club on Monday evening. They are pictured here with the Raven GSC' Chairman, Dale Mooney.
Many thanks to the Raven GSC for their kind and generous donation.

There was stalemate in this afternoon’s Irish Cup final dress rehearsal at the Oval. Eddie Patterson made a number of changes to the line up that lost to Linfield in midweek, with Steven Gordon moving to right back, Jonny Addis taking up a midfield role just in front of the back four and Steven McCullough coming in at left back in place of the injured Marcus Kane.
Glentoran face Portadown at the Oval in the Danske Bank Premiership this weekend.
The 2015 Irish Cup final between Portadown and Glentoran will be played at the Oval on Saturday 2nd May with a 2:30pm kick-off.
Representatives from both clubs will meet with the IFA early next week to finalise arrangements.
We will have NO information on ticketing until after that meeting.
This will be the first final staged at the Oval for 20 years, the last being Carrick Rangers v Linfield in 1995.
This Saturday sees the launch of a book on the career of John Colrain written by Philip Stevenson, Chairman of the Glentoran Supporters Committee (1923). The launch will take place in the McLean's Suite at 1pm and members of the famous 'Cougars' team, managed by Colrain, will be in attendance along with members of John's family.
