Supporters may be aware that the IFA announcement this week on the granting of Domestic and UEFA licenses for 2016/17 that Glentoran has been effectively fined £250 for "failure to have club representatives attend the session in respect of UEFA stipulated criterion S.08, Refereeing Matters and Laws of the Game".

Glentoran supporters have voted Curtis Allen as their 'Player of the Year' for 2015-16.

The voting, organised by Castlereagh GSC, took place prior to last Saturday's Danske Bank league fixture against Glenavon.

Curtis topped the poll with Barry Holland coming second and Marcus Kane third.

Saturday saw Allen play his 100th game for Glentoran. He has 47 goals so far, including 21 this season.

Glentoran 0 - 1 Glenavon

Glentoran fell to their second defeat of the week as Kevin Braniff’s second half goal gave Glenavon the three points.  There were several changes to the Glentoran line up with Calum Birney coming into centre back, winger Chris Lavery starting and long term absentee Kym Nelson returning to the midfield.

Match Preview

Fri, 22/04/2016 - 20:36

Glentoran will be looking to put Tuesday’s bitter defeat behind them with a big performance against Glenavon tomorrow.

The Glens were crestfallen after their unbeaten run stretching back to five matches came to a grinding halt following a 4-0 horror show against rivals Linfield at the Oval.

After the game, boss Alan Kernaghan admitted his team were “embarrassed”, and he will be determined to dilute the setback with a convincing showing against the Lurgan Blues.

Glentoran 0-4 Linfield

Wed, 20/04/2016 - 18:31

It's every football fans' worst nightmare as Glentoran were humiliated and made to look sub-standard by fierce rivals Linfield on their own patch last night, as the Blues battered a sorry Glens side 4-0 to ironic cries of 'can we play you every week?' from the away support. A sunny evening saw a decent turn-out for two sides with little to play for except the much coveted bragging rights, but within 3 minutes many in green and red probably wished they hadn't bothered.

Glentoran v Linfield

Tue, 19/04/2016 - 15:57

Glentoran will be looking to extend their recent unbeaten run when they face Linfield at the Oval this evening.

Manager, Alan Kernaghan is likely to have Jay Magee back in the squad after the big central defender missed last Saturday's fine victory at Solitude against Cliftonville. A win for the Glens and a defeat for Coleraine away to Glenavon could see the East Belfast side move into 5th position in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Tickets ARE NOT REQUIRED for this fixture although anyone who had purchased one may use it at the appropriate turnstile.
