Step up Glens Under 14s

Last year’s Under 13 squad has made the transition from 9 a side to 11 a side this year with seamless effort. With only 2 girls added to an already exciting squad and only being together in their second year as a team the girls have excelled. Goalkeeper Jasmine Graham, signed from Linfield, has added a stability to the team and 2009 player Cassie Henderson (daughter of former Irish league player Ryan), signed from Lurgan Celtic has added goals to defy her age.

In their first 11 a side game Cassie scored 2 goals to defeat Crusaders Strikers, a well-established team in girls’ football. The girls have had other highlights including some notable victories against Portavogie, Bloomfield, St Pats, and other performances against both 2007 and 2008 boys’ teams and in-house friendlies. They’ve faced national league boys’ teams, narrowly losing out 2-1 against Cliftonville and another narrow defeat against a SBYL top tier team in the form of Killyleagh, 4-3. The progress of the squad has been exceptional and the bond the girls have is second to none! The squad will be testing themselves this season again in the boys’ league.

Flashback

Back in 2011 Glentoran officially launched its first ever Junior Academy for Girls.

Who would have thought, back then, a young 8 year old Joely Andrews (far right) pictured here with first team player Kelly Bailie would then go on to play alongside Kelly in the Glentoran Womens senior team.

A true example of how the player pathway works here at Glentoran Women as we provide an environment that helps all junior players realise their potential, whether that means they are the best club player they can be, seek a lifelong commitment to the game through coaching or volunteering or perhaps go on to represent their country.

Congratulations to Joely who has also recently started her coaching badges here at the club having already completed her level 1 and is currently coaching within our under 9 teams back where it all started with her, as she aims to give back to the next generation at Glentoran Women F.C
