Glentoran Football Club is delighted to announce the beginning of this summer’s recruitment with the signing of goalkeeper Ross Glendinning from Ballymena United.

Ross (28) is the son of legendary Glentoran full back Mark Glendinning, who made 185 appearances for the club during the Roy Coyle era, scoring 26 goals. Ross was at Glentoran briefly as a young teenager before seven years with Linfield and the past five at the Showgrounds where he made 158 first team appearances. He has been capped for Northern Ireland ant U16, U18 and U21 level.

Mick McDermott: “I’m delighted to have Ross joining Glentoran.  He has a wealth of experience in the Irish League and has shown his quality over numerous seasons.

Everyone knows Ross has history with our club, his family has a strong bond with our Club and when we approached him about joining Glentoran he immediately said ‘yes’.  That, to me, was massive in our decision to sign him - his desire to be at our club and to be successful with Glentoran was transparent throughout our talks. I am very much looking forward to having Ross join the squad for pre-season training.

I’d like to thank Ballymena United FC for their professionalism in recent days in assisting with Ross’ transition to Glentoran FC”.

Welcome to the Oval Ross and to all the successful times ahead
