Cup Final Heroes - Jim 'Bimbo' Weatherup

Mon, 27/04/2015 - 12:07

Jim Weatherup made his first team debut for Glentoran at the tender age of 17 in 1956. He entered the team in an incredible run of 5 games in a row where Glentoran conceded 3 times. We lost 4 of them 3-2! The other we salvaged a 3-3 draw. The 3-2 defeat against Bangor was Bimbo's debut where Glentoran missed two penalties on way to defeat. The day was remembered for the opening of Glentoran's new changing rooms for the first time since the Oval re-opened following the bombing in the Second World War.

Cup Final Heroes- Terry Conroy

Sun, 26/04/2015 - 16:57

In 1965/66 Glentoran ended a 15 year wait to pick up the Irish Cup crown for an 8th time, once again against the old enemy Linfield. Terry Conroy was the hero on the day, scoring both goals in a 2-0 victory. Conroy was born in Dublin and signed for Glentoran at the age of 19 following a spell with Home Farm. He signed for the Glens and went straight into the squad for the Seconds in the Steel and Sons Cup Final victory over Larne.

Glentoran 1-0 Cliftonville

Sun, 26/04/2015 - 12:57

Glentoran finished the 2014/15 Danske Bank Premiership campaign with victory at home to Cliftonville in an encounter that broadly possessed a pre-season friendly feel to it, with both clubs having their final league positions confirmed though of course for the Glens there was the small matter of cup final places up for grabs.
