Match Preview: Glentoran v Larne

Thu, 05/09/2019 - 22:10

Saturday 7th September 2019, Kick Off 3.00 pm

On Saturday our visitors to the Oval are Larne, back in the top division for the first time in twelve seasons. Obviously a very different Larne this time due to the high-profile investment and big spending over the past two years following the takeover of the club in 2017.

Larne are currently one point and one place behind us in sixth place having played one game fewer.  So, this should be a very interesting contest between two well matched teams.

Hrvoje Plum has celebrated his first month at Glentoran by winning the Glentoran Player of The Month for August.

Hrvoje won 26% of the supporters' vote in a keenly contested ballot after a month when he scored with a great strike against Coleraine and had a number of excellent efforts in our other games, particularly at Ballymena Showgrounds.

Mick McDermott said of the vote: “Hrvoje has given us a taste of what can do during this first month. Glentoran fans have always had a good eye for quality players and by their votes they reinforce this!
