Carrick Rangers 0-2 Glentoran

Wed, 30/07/2014 - 22:03

Glentoran won their latest pre-season game 2-0 at Taylor's Avenue, Carrickfergus this evening. Jim O'Hanlon put the Glens in front with a neat finish after 13 minutes. Stand-in goalkeeper, Chris Keenan then did well to prevent a Carrick Rangers equaliser before the home side hit the upright on 25 minutes. Mark Miskimmin thought he'd doubled Glentoran's advantage on the half hour mark but the goal was ruled out for offside. Jordan Stewart was then unlucky to see his effort deflected onto the post on 36 minutes.

What a month for the Glentoran Academy! Dominating at the Foyle Cup and now this...

Congratulations to Lewis McGarvey, Ethan Warnock, Ben Cushnie, Paul McLaughlin, Ethan Galbraith and Christopher Conn. All 6 starred at the UEFA Cup for Glentoran in Berlin recently too.

19 full international caps.

2 full international goals.
