Glentoran Women 0 - 0 Crusaders Strikers
Glentoran will feel aggrieved not to come away with the three points on the opening day of the Danske Bank Women;'s Premiership campaign. They dominated from start to finish and their back four and keeper were rarely troubled. The Glentoran Players seemed to relish the opportunity to get the ball wide on the big Oval pitch, Samantha Kelly and Demi Vance caused havoc in the first half and were both unlucky not to put the ball in the net.
Crusaders will be happy with their defensive display but will hope to create more chances in future games. Glentoran on the whole will be happy with their nights work but will have to put it down to just ‘One of those Nights’ in front of goal.
Before the match our new signing Apife Lennon was ruled out as her international clearance from her previous club in New Zwaland has not completed.
