Sydenham By-Pass Delays: Glentoran v Cliftonville game.

Tue, 03/03/2020 - 22:26

The Sydenham By Pass country bound lanes from Dee Street to George Best City Airport, will be closed for resurfacing from Friday 6th March at 23:30 until the morning of Monday 9th March and for 2 weekends after, subject to weather.

Access to the Oval from the Dee Street lights will continue as normal. However there are bound to be traffic delays and possible long queues.

Therefore we suggest that supporters of both clubs leave home earlier than normal to avoid likely long queues just before kick off time.

Statement from Glentoran Football Club

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 21:14

Further to an article in tomorrow’s News Letter, The Board of Directors of Glentoran FC wish to make it clear that the club had no intention of making any comment on the behaviour of Crusaders players at the end of our cup tie on Saturday. The club believes that matter of Crusaders players’ behaviour is one for Crusaders and the other appropriate authorities to address based on the referee’s report and any other relevant evidence, so it would not have been appropriate for Glentoran to comment.

Obituary: Roy Miller

Fri, 21/02/2020 - 13:36

It is with great regret and sadness that we confirm the passing of lifelong Glenman and long serving member of the Ballymac GSC, Roy Miller.

Roy served as Chairman of the Ballymac for several years in the early 1990s when the club was based in the Oval. He was a very active member of players’ benefit committees from the era of Raymond Morrison and George Neill through to the latter days of Colin Nixon and Paul Leeman, and the value of his hard work and input value was consistently appreciated by all the recipient players. He was also President of the First Newtownards GSC
