In the second part of this career retrospective interview with legendary Glentoran manager Tommy Jackson, Tommy spoke to Ian Clarke about the second half of his trophy laden tenure. Not least about two seasons that will live foirever in the memory of any Glentoran supporter lucky enough to have witnessed them.
Marcus and Aimee Kane’s #HikeForHarrie campaign to raise £10,000 for bereavement services at RVH Maternity has exceeded double that figure to currently stand at a fantastic £20,409!
For the third in this series on our league or cup winning managers of the past four decades, we concentrate on our six and a half seasons under Tommy Jackson. In trophy terms, Tommy Jackson is jointly with Roy Coyle, the most successful manager in Glentoran’s history. Ian Clarke spoke to Tommy, still a regular at Glentoran matches.
Part two of Johnny Jameson’s Legends XI deals with the latter half of Jamie’s long career at Glentoran. Have a bit of fun deciding which one would have won a match between them.

Marcus and Aimee Kane’s #HikeForHarrie campaign to raise £10,000 for bereavement services at RVH Maternity has exceeded double that figure to currently stand at a fantastic £20,159!
Glentoran Gazette contributor and former editor, John Grayden, first saw the Glens play in May, 1959. In this new series he picks imaginary sides from throughout the years in a random selection of categories. A few are factual while most are subjective and by no means definitive. While he has seen the majority of players in action, a few from other eras are included because of their contributions to the club’s history.

With young Charlie Lindsay today completing his long anticipated move to the goants of Rangers, Glentoran has lost a young player with great talent, a fantastic attitude and we are sure a lad with a great future in the game for club and country.
Glentoran’s 16-year old prodigy Charlie Lindsay today completed his dream move to one of the world’s greatest clubs when he signed professional forms for Rangers.
East Belfast boy Charlie has been a star in the making since joining the club. He made his debut for the Under 20s when just fourteen, and earlier this season he became Glentoran’s youngest ever first team player when he played against Ballyclare Comrades at the Oval.
Marcus and Aimee Kane’s #HikeForHarrie campaign to raise £10,000 for bereavement services at RVH Maternity now stands just £58 short of double the original target as it stands tonight at £19,942!
We have broken the rules for this one. Johnny Jameson showed me his list and he nearly gave up because of the number of great players he played with. He couldn’t settle on eleven. No surprise for someone who played 498 times for the Glens (our ninth highest appearance maker in the club’s history) and scored 123 times from the right wing, between joining for £10,000 for Linfield in September 1980 and his enforced retirement through injury in September 1993.
