Glentoran begin their road towards European play-off glory with a trip to the Coleraine Showgrounds tonight. 

After a disappointing season for the Glens which saw them fail to retain their Irish Cup and finish sixth in the Danske Bank Premiership, tonight’s semi-final (rescheduled kick-off at 8pm) could give the East Belfast side a lifeline.

A lucrative 200,000 euros is at stake for the play-off winners, but the Glens must first overcome Coleraine before meeting Cliftonville in the final at Solitude on Tuesday (9th May).

Glens Success in Northern Ireland Boys' FA Cup

Glentoran Academy claimed a memorable double yesterday at the Meadowbank Sports Arena in Magherafelt at the annual NIBFA Cup finals day. Our U12s and U15s both won their finals 2-0 as the U12s claimed their maiden tournament win in the NIBFA Cup and our U15s landed an incredible fourth NIBFA Cup in five seasons. Our U16s are yet to compete in their final – which was delayed due to International call ups – as the Academy goes in search of a hat-trick.

Glentoran closed out the NIFL Premiership season with a 1-0 defeat at home to Crusaders today at The Oval. Alan Kernaghan made three changes to the side that lost to Glenavon a week ago bringing in Jonny Smith, Barry Holland and Jonny Addis with Steven Gordon, David Scullion and Chris Morrow dropping out. Crusaders arrived in East Belfast with a much rotated squad having already clinched the Premiership title with two games to spare.

Glentoran welcome newly crowned Danske Bank Premiership champions Crusaders to the Oval on Saturday.

The match will bring a close to the domestic campaign, but the season is far from over for the Glens who are still in contention for a spot in Europe via the play-offs.

Although the league has already been wrapped up for Crusaders, tomorrow’s encounter could help Alan Kernaghan’s men rediscover the form that they'd shown before the Linfield defeat.
