Easter Tuesday sees Derby Day hit Belfast as the original 'Big Two' lock horns at Windsor Park in the Danske Bank Premiership. Although Glentoran and Linfield find themselves 3rd and 4th best this season, the fixture still promises to serve up one of the big attendances of the domestic calendar and as always there will be no love lost between the two sides. Glentoran and Linfield may not be contesting for the league title but there is still significance in Tuesday's game.
Prior to Saturday's game against Crusaders members of Ballymac GSC made two presentations.
The club presented Elliott Morris with a cheque for £1000 in his testimonial season.
They also made a donation of £1000 to the Meningitis Research Foundation.

Congratulations to Peter Murray who was the winner of the Academy ‘Easter Basket’ ballot sold at the Oval, with his winning ticket ‘Green 606-610’. The academy would like to thank Peter and all others who kindly purchased tickets, helping to raise funds for us to invest in the development of future stars for Glentoran. The Academy would also like to thank Marty Smith for her time and effort in organising this and the other baskets that are being balloted in several other locations.
Tomorrow's league game against Crusaders is the final game before the league splits into a top and bottom half. Both Glentoran and The Crues have secured their places in the top section with ease but now the pressure cranks up for the final 6 league fixtures in determining the final positions of each team. Glentoran are lying in 4th position, the disappointing defeat at home to Dungannon Swifts keeping us 5 points behind 3rd place Linfield. Coleraine are 3 points behind us in 5th with Ballinamallard still scraping for their top 6 finish with Portadown.
Well after the postponement of last week's game, we now welcome Crusaders on the short journey across Belfast for this last game in the League before the split.
