Glentoran Player of the Year: Season Ticket holders to vote

Thu, 13/05/2021 - 01:00

As all Glentoran supporters will know, the Castlereagh Glentoran Supporters Club has conducted the independent poll for Glentoran Player of the Year since the 1957/1958 season.

For obvious reasons it is impossible to conduct the normal supporter poll at the penultimate home league match of this season. Therefore the Castlereagh GSC and the parent club have agreed that all 2020/2021 season ticket holders will be able to vote remotely to decide this season’s winner.

All season ticket holders will receive an email over the next couple of days

Glentoran's Irish Cup defence is over after a 1-nil defeat at the Oval tonight. The Glens went with the same XI that started last Saturday's win over Cliftonville but tonight they just couldn't get that vital breakthrough and exited the competition.

On Sunday last, four members of the Dundonald Glentoran Supporters Club took part in Glentoran's  sponsored walk in support of the 10K by May campaign run by Belfast and Lisburn Women’s Aid. The lads from Dundonals were proud to play their part in raising both money and awareness of the impact of domestic abuse on women and their children, as well as to raise awareness of the important work done by the team at Belfast and Lisburn Women’s Aid.

Glentoran 1-0 Cliftonville

Sat, 08/05/2021 - 20:06

A second half goal from Rory Donnelly was enough to see the Glens progress to the quarter-final of the Irish Cup. 

With Marcus Kane out injured, Paddy McClean retained the captain's armband for this game with Mick McDermott sticking to the same back four that played against Coleraine. Dale Gorman and Jamie McDonagh started in place of Andrew Mitchell and the injured Robbie McDaid.

Before kick-off, a minutes silece was observed as a mark of respect to former Glentoran Chairman, John Parkinson, who sadly passed away earlier this week.

Player of the Month Bigi

Fri, 07/05/2021 - 18:02

We are delighted to announce that the winner of the supporters’ vote as April Glentoran Player of the Month is Gael Bigirimana.

This win came on the back of an exceptional run of form in the Glens’ midfield that also saw Bigi voted runner-up to Jay Donnelly in March.

Bigi played every minute of our seven-match unbeaten April in the Danske Bank Premiership and secured 52% of the supporters’ vote. Rory Donnelly, scorer of five goals in the month was a strong runner up with Jay Donnelly third and Luke McCullough fourth,

Sion Swifts 0-3 Glentoran Women

Thu, 06/05/2021 - 00:04

Champions Glentoran  Women eased to a three-goal win at Sion Swifts thanks to a 15-minute hat-trick from striker Kerry Beattie.

The Northern Ireland international hit a quickfire treble between the 63rd and 78th minute to secure Billy Clarke’s side the points - the equivalent fixture last season saw the only match in which the Glens dropped points in a shortened campaign, when they went down to a 4-3 loss.

The first half was a cagey affair with few clear-cut openings for either side, before the game was decided by Beattie’s goals.
