Match Preview: Larne v Glentoran

Thu, 17/10/2019 - 22:00

Friday 18 October 2019, Kick Off 7.45 pm

Tomorrow we head to Inver Park for the first time in twelve seasons to face Larne for the third time this season and the second time in four days.

Our last visit to Inver Park was in February 2008 when a Gary Hamilton hat trick secured a 3-0 win for Alan McDonald’s Glens. However, that was a very different Inver Park and a very different Larne FC from the ambitious, well resourced club, recently promoted from the Championship.

Glentoran 3-2 Larne (aet)

Wed, 16/10/2019 - 00:18

Glentoran reached their first semi-final in 4 years with an extra-time win over Larne at the Oval on Tuesday evening. Manager, Mick McDermott freshened up the side with a number of changes but it was the visitors who started the brighter, Conor McKendry firing a 30 yard effort just wide on 10 minutes. The same player had another opportunity just after the quarter hour mark but having gone past Marcus Kane and Patrick McClean he saw his low shot come back off the post.

The Pill Box restored

Mon, 14/10/2019 - 18:36

Saturday’s game against Carrick Rangers at the Oval saw the culmination of over a years work in a bid to restore the very unique WWII Type 24 Pill Box which has sat on top of Sydenham hill since its construction in 1940. Generations have grown up to accept the small incongruous building as a permanent fixture at the Oval. In recent years however, the building had fallen into disrepair. The fortification holds significant meaning not only for Glentoran, but for the whole of the city of Belfast as it is one of the few defences against the German Luftwaffe still in existence.

On Tuesday we entertain Larne for the first of two meetings this week, this time in the County Antrim Shield. Having been unfortunate to go out of the Bet McLean League Cup at Coleraine last week, our players and management will be determined to stay in the Shield as we seek our first silverware since 2015 and the first of the new era at the club.
