Our former manager Ronnie McFall has accepted the invitation to return to the position. Ronnie has vast experience in the local game and has enjoyed great success throughout his career. Ronnie will guide us until the end of the season at which time a decision on the future direction of the club will be announced. He will select his own backroom team and will be in charge for Saturday’s home match with Cliftonville.
Glentoran FC wishes to announce that Team Manager Gary Haveron has left the club.
Since his appointment, Gary has shown unrelenting enthusiasm and commitment to the role and to securing a positive future for Glentoran. His work rate never wavered and he has been an outstanding ambassador for the club. We thank him for this and wish Gary every success for the future both inside and outside football.
The club is delighted to formally announce that two of our top young prospects – James McCarthy and Paul O’Neill – have signed their first professional contracts for the club. We believe Paul and James are the first players born in the 21st Century to sign as professionals for Glentoran.
Brooklands Primary School – Lagan College
Another disappointing home display and another defeat as Glentoran went down 2-1 to lowly Ards.
The first half saw Glentoran seemingly in control with a lot of possession and a string of corners but ultimately Sam Johnston in the visitors goal had a quiet opening 45 minutes.
Glentoran v Ards

On Friday evening we welcome our County Down neighbours Ards to the Oval for the second time this season.
A late Marcus Kane header gave Glentoran all three points from a tight cagey game against Carrick Rangers on Tuesday night at The Belfast Loughshore Hotel Arena. Marcus’ goal along with an early Robbie McDaid strike was enough to overcome a goal from ex-Glens striker Darren Henderson.
Carrick Rangers v Glentoran
Tuesday 13th February 2018, 7.45pm.
On Tuesday evening we visit the Belfast Loughshore Hotel Arena for the Danske Bank Premiership match rearranged from January 20th. This will be our fourth meeting of the season with Carrick Rangers.
Despite an early goal from Alex O'Hanlon, Glentoran were well beaten by Danske Bank Premiership leaders, Crusaders this afternoon. With Willie Garrett having picked up an injury on Tuesday evening's narrow victory over Ballinamallard Utd, Jonny Addis came back into the centre of the defence alongside Calum Birney. Kym Nelson returned at left back with Ross Redman dropping to the bench and also amongst the substitutes was John McGuigan, the attacking midfielder also picking up an injury in the midweek fixture.
Crusaders v Glentoran
Saturday 10th February, 3.00pm.
On Saturday we visit Seaview, for our third meeting of the season with Crusaders.
Our record against league leaders Crusaders this season, as in most recent years, is not a good one with two defeats and no goals scored. The 0-1 defeat at Seaview in December was more encouraging with a decent defensive performance from the Glens. This week we’ll be hoping to go at least one better.
Lisa & Darren Lockhart have organised a charity game, cabaret and auction on behalf of the City Hospital Cancer Centre.
