On Saturday we look to get back to winning ways after our late defeat last Saturday, by welcoming Warrenpoint Town to the Oval.
Point have had a torrid start to the season, losing all of their six matches so far, to trail Institute by a point and Glenavon by three points at the foot of the table.
It's that time of year again! This Saturday 21st September we are launching our Glentoran Christmas 2019 Appeal.
We will have a collection point in the main carpark (at the directors' entrance) during our home matches.
Westbourne GSC and Glentoran Superstore are also drop off points again this year. This year we will strive to help as many homeless, struggling families and OAPs as we possibly can.
www.glentoran.com recently caught up with David Lowry, Manager of our Under 20 team, to get his thoughts on the start to the season, to bring our supporters up to date with the comings and goings at reserve team level over the summer and to get some understanding on his thoughts for the season ahead.
An 86th minute winner cost Glentoran what would have been at least a deserved draw in the season’s first “Big Two” match. But while late goals proved consistently costly last season, the manner of this defeat was very different in a game where resolute defending and strong, fast forward play again demonstrated the clear improvement in the Glens and our ability to compete much more effectively with the league’s better sides this season.

This week’s 3-1 win over Ballyclare Comrades marked another clear demonstration of the vital importance of the Glentoran Academy, in producing first team players of both the present and future. In addition to Paul O’Neill, Mal Smith and James McCarthy all establishing themselves as first teamers this season, the Ballyclare game saw a first team debut for Lewis McGarvey, a return for Salou Jallow and a debut for Charlie Lindsay as the youngest ever Glentoran first-team player. Last but not least, we saw first senior goals from Mal and Salou.
