Glentoran 1 - 2 Glenavon

Mon, 18/02/2019 - 23:11

Glentoran supporters witnessed déjà vu tonight in a manner that epitomised both this season so far and basically the past few seasons. This season in our failure to see out the closing minutes when in a strong, hard won winning position. The past few years in the way that 38 year old Gary Hamilton was able to yet again bring himself on late in the game and turn it in Glenavon’s favour despite rarely playing at any level this season.

Robbie is Glens January Player of the Month

Sun, 10/02/2019 - 22:25

Robbie McDaid’s strong performances have been rewarded by winning the Supporters Glentoran Player of the Month vote for January.

Robbie was very influential throughout the month in a front three with Curtis Allen and new signiung Darren Murray. It can be fairly said that his direct running and his strength of character were largely responsible for overturning a deficit at home against Newry City as his rampaging down the right hand side delivered two pinpoint crosses that directly led to the two late goals that gave us our 2-1 victory.

Winning debut for Mal

Sat, 09/02/2019 - 22:26

A notable aspect of today's 5-0 win at Warrenpoint was the first team debut of young right back, Mal Smith when he was introduced as a second half substitute for John Herron.

Seventeen year old Mal joined the club as a ten year old. He has represented Northern Ireland at all levels so far and has scored in two NI Cup Finals. This season he is our Under 20s captain and has scored ten goals this season from right back!
