Mick McDermott has been named NIFL Manager of the Month for the second time in three months after an October in which the Glens played six games in all competitions winning all six. During the month, the Glens scored sixteen goals with only one conceded.

Mick said of his award: “This award is for the whole team. I’d like to thank the Football Writers for selecting us.

Our current run is about the desire within the team because I hear them talking in training, before games, at half-time and at full-time.

Glentoran Women 2-1 Sion Swifts Ladies

Sun, 06/11/2022 - 01:27

Glentoran Women emulated the great Glentoran men's team of the 1980s to made it four Electric Ireland Women's Challenge Cup triumphs in a row with victory over Sion Swifts Ladies at the National Football Stadium this evening

A somewhat tentative opening to proceedings saw both sides sound each other out.

As play progressed Glentoran began to assert themselves more and fired a warning shot on 23 minutes when Kerry Beattie volleyed just wide of the target from a Jessica Foy set piece.

Glentoran 3-1 Dungannon Swifts

Glentoran returned to the top of the Danske Bank Premiership following a 3-1 victory at the Bet McLean Oval this afternoon. It wasn't the straightforward win that the scoreline suggests though with Dungannon Swifts making things really difficult for the home side and it was only when Conor McMenamin netted the third goal on 85 minutes that the home support felt secure.
