Glentoran recorded an easy victory in this evening's pre-season friendly at the Oval. David Scullion opened the scoring on 15 minutes with a header from Curtis Allen's cross and two great through balls from Stephen McAlorum were finished off by Fra McCaffrey and Jordan Stewart to put the Glens three up after 39 minutes. East Belfast pulled one back with a great finish by Stanley, but the Glens restored their lead almost immediately when Scullion capitalised on a mistake in the visitors' defence. There was time for a fifth before half time as Curtis Allen rolled home his first goal of the night.
There was more of the same after the break with Allen completing his hat trick with goals on 54 and 66 minutes, the latter after great work by Danny McKee. The final goal of the night came on 78 minutes with substitute Jim O'Hanlon finishing well after a typical jinking run.
