Tonight's Gazette

Fri, 13/05/2022 - 08:02

The Glentoran Gazette team and Chris McAllister of MCAprint have worked overtime to rush out a final issue for this season. Defender Darren Cole is the choice of Joe Burns and Beth Stafford as the cover star of a 32-page Gazette which highlights the importance of the Danske Bank Premiership’s richest game, a cup final in all but name with so much at stake. Mick McDermott praises Tuesday’s match winners Conor McMenamin and Jay Donnelly and says he expects a tough game against Larne, while our writers profile Tiernan Lynch’s side and highlight some of the Inver Park side’s dangermen. Looking ahead to next season Matthew Brown makes an appeal for unity among Glens fans. Henry Muldrew emphasises that a club’s history is crucial to its being and his argument is neatly backed up by two of the Gazette’s regular contributors. In a feature which bears comparison with what is going on in eastern Ukraine, Roy Downes brings a tale from Glenmen fighting in the trenches of World War One while Brian McClelland recalls two towering figures of the past in Danny Blanchflower and Con Martin. And, of course, Norman Ternahan and Thomas Sewell have covered Tuesday night’s action in words and pictures. Publishers, the Glentoran Supporters' Committee (1923) and the programme’s editorial team appreciate the backing of the club’s supporters throughout the season. The Gazette, by the fans for the fans, is £3.
