Victorious 2004 and 2006 teams pose together after their Foyle Cup successes
Glentoran Academy are once again well represented at the Super Cup NI (Formerly Milk Cup) with no fewer than 18 current players making appearances in this week’s competition.
Unfortunately Glentoran Academy have been denied entry to the Super Cup NI despite applying to take part and instead have to send players to join representative teams, none the less it still gives us great pride and pleasure to see so many young men from our club playing in this world renowned tournament and we wish them and their respective teams every success in this week’s competition.
As Chairman of the GCT I guess you get to have more conversations than most with Glentoran Chairman, Stephen Henderson, but when you see his number coming up on your phone towards the end of July you sort of know it's not an invitation to a barbecue! The club were keen to extend a player’s contract and when Stephen named the player involved everyone on the GCT Board was eager to listen.
The Glens ran out comfortable winners against Dundela at Wilgar Park this afternoon.
Manager, Alan Kernaghan named a strong starting line up - Nelson, Birney, Magee, Addis, Smyth, Harmon, Lavery, Nelson, Redman, Allen & O'Flynn.
Glentoran were largely in control in the first half but as in the two previous pre-season games, were unable to turn that domination into goals and at the interval we were still scoreless.
