Firstly let me start of by thanking everyone who has registered and already paid for this month's 200 Club. Although you might not realise it, you are making a massive contribution to our club. Our winners' pot currently stands at £580, meaning 1st place prize for this month's first draw is a guaranteed £290, and we are giving those who have not signed up yet one last opportunity to get in on the action!

Bertie McGonigal

Former Glentoran goalkeeper, Bertie McGonigal has passed away. Bertie was born in Cookstown in 1942 and played for Chimney Corner before joining Glentoran in 1959.

Bertie spent 3 seasons with the Glens, making 102 appearances. He was in goals when Glentoran won the Gold Cup in 1961, defeating Linfield 4-2 in the final at Solitude. 

Ballymena host Glentoran at Showgrounds

Glentoran will travel to Ballymena Utd this Saturday looking to pick up consecutive victories for the first time this season. Glentoran defeated Coleraine 2-0 at The Oval last week giving Eddie Patterson's side their first win for four games ending a poor run with draws against Ballinamallard Utd and Portadown whilst losing to Crusaders in between. At this early stage of the season with the table fairly clumped, back to back wins would certainly help the Glens climb the table as quickly as possible.

A few weeks ago I received a call from Glentoran suggesting we might have another food collection for The Larder.  Let me explain.  The Larder is a local food bank operating out of St Christopher's Church in Parkgate Drive, literally at the gates of the Oval.  So far in 2014 we have given bags of food to over 1400 people.  It is emergency food, so if there is a crisis in payment of benefits or someone loses a job or an emergency occurs that requires extra money a family or a person may need a helping hand for a week or two.

Is It You We're Looking For?

Last Tuesday night at the home game v Portadown, we had Neil Lamont taking details and payments for the 200 Club in the McLean's Suite before the match. There were10 people who came forward and signed up, but we need to find 3 of them. Everyone was given a membership number and those with numbers 57, 58 and 59, we would like you to get in touch ASAP.

Can you please contact us by email on or call into the Superstore on Thursday (open 4.30pm until 7pm). We need a little bit more info from you.

Glentoran 2 - 0 Coleraine

Sat, 06/09/2014 - 17:23

A Howard Beverland own goal and a superb finish from David Scullion gave Glentoran a somewhat flattering 2-0 victory over Coleraine at the Oval this afternoon.  Eddie Patterson named an unchanged starting XI after the midweek draw with Portadown and saw his side take the lead after just nine minutes.  Curtis Allen tried to work a one-two with Fra McCaffrey on the edge of the Coleraine box but McCaffrey’s return pass was intercepted by Howard Beverland and the Coleraine captain was unfortunate to toe poke the ball into the bottom corner of his own net, leaving goalkeeper Michael Doherty wro
