Glentoran FC Statement: 17/12/14
Glentoran FC is very shocked and disappointed at the ruling issued today by NIFL, both in terms of the ruling itself and of the very weak and superficial explanation offered by the NIFL.
For those attending the Christmas Lunch this Saturday at the Oval, please be at the McLeans Suite for 12 mid-day sharp.
This event is now SOLD OUT and no more bookings can be taken.
Post Match Entertainment
This Saturday (20th December) is your final chance to make a difference.
Most of our supporters will be enjoying Christmas this year at home with family and friends but we are asking you to spare a thought for those less fortunate who, for whatever reason, will not have a home, warm fire, and plenty of festive food to enjoy over the season.
In the run up to Christmas 2014 we are asking supporters to also help us bring a little help for those in need.
Eddie Patterson named an unchanged side for today's visit to Stangmore Parkhowever both Naill Henderson and Fra McCaffrey returned to the bench following their one match suspension.

It's matchday 21 in the Danske Bank Premiership for Glentoran tomorrow and a trip to Stangmore Park to face Dungannon Swifts. The Glens have a decent record at Stangmore, winning on their last 3 visits to the Co. Tyrone venue.
