A great, piercing run and cross from Daire O’Connor and a sublime finish from Junior on 71 minutes gave a very youthful Glens a deserved victory over Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock at the Bet McLean Oval this evening.
Warren Feeney used 22 players, including 7 teenagers with 10 changes at half time. The younger Glens in particular rose to the challenge against quality opposition in a second half in which Kirk McLaughlin and Rhys Walsh also went close.
Our last friendly before heading for Malta next week is a home friendly v Bangor on Saturday (KO 3pm).
Glentoran: McCarey, Wightman, Singleton, McCullough, Wilson, Kelly, Locke. McGinn, Trialist, McMenamin & McCartan
Subs: Webber, Burns, Marshall, O’Connor, Jenkins, McLaughlin, Walsh, Junior, Boyd, White & Brennan
