I have been in my position of Commercial Director for just a few weeks and during that time I have spoke to many of my friends at The club, friends outside The club, the players and management and Directors, and many of you have lots of different ideas on how I should go about my role, and of course I have my own. Even my little girl has been coming up with plans on how we can all help OUR Club!

It is with deep regret that the Club has learnt of the passing of Glentoran Seconds stalwart Jackie Banford. Jackie was the right back in the hugely successful Seconds team during the John Colrain era, winning back to back George Wilson and Steel and Sons Cup doubles in the 1965/66 and 1966/67 seasons. He also made three first team appearances between 1967 and 1969. Jackie was a lifelong friend of Tommy Jackson and worked as his assistant during his time as manager of Ballymena United.
