Glens thank Makyla

Before kick off on Friday evening, Glentoran Women legend Makyla Mulholland was presented with a gift from the club and her teammates to recognise her retirement after an outstanding career as a Glentoran player.

Makyla first  joined Glentoran as a 16-year-old in 2007. In her years she was won each of the senior trophies in Northern Ireland on numerous occasions and has played frequently in Europe for the club. Probably her most memorable game was the remarkable Electric Ireland Women's Challenge Cup Final in 2018 when two fantastic late late headed goals from Makyla overturned a Linfield lead to clinch the cup for the Glens.

Glentoran Vice Chairman Colin Jess presented the gift to Makyla and said of her contribution to the club: “On behalf of myself and Glentoran Football Club I would like to wish Makyla every success for the future.  As a supporter of our club I have had many memories but none more so than the Women's Irish Cup final in 2018. One nil down to our arch rivals Linfield with five minutes to go and up steps Makyla to grab two goals to clinch the trophy.  Makyla has been a role model for everyone attached to the Women’s game and her loyalty and commitment is to be commended.  Makyla, all at Glentoran wish you the very best for your future career. “

Thanks Makyla. Don’t be a stranger.
