Glentoran 1-2 Coleraine

Sat, 23/09/2023 - 01:44

Four shambolic minutes late in the second half cost Glentoran three points and their place at the top of the Sports Direct Premiership at the Bet McLean Oval this evening. But to be fair there can be few complaints after a generally lifeless and insipid ninety minutes from the Glens.

Match Preview: Glentoran v Coleraine

Thu, 21/09/2023 - 22:58

We face Coleraine tomorrow night for the first time this season.

While excitement is building off the pitch at the imminent prospect of new investment, results on the pitch so far have been decidedly mixed for Coleraine.  Maximum points were secured from their opening 2 fixtures, but last Saturday’s 3-1 home win over Newry was a first in 5 league games and they have also exited the Scottish Challenge Cup after losing to Hamilton Academical at the Showgrounds in that time.

The club has been contacted by residents of Parkgate Drive and of Mersey Street School regarding supporter parking on match days.

Supporter parking has also caused difficulty at times of medical emergency.

Glentoran Seconds 5–0 Newry City Reserves

Mon, 18/09/2023 - 22:01

A quick fire early  double from Killian McCandless and goals from Casey Smyth, James Douglas and Caolan Hardy gave the third placed Wee Glens a comfortable win over Newry City at Ashfield this evening.

Four smashing goals in the first half saw the glens come in four up at half time. The pressure, pace and movement of the front three caught Newry on the back foot from the  start. McCandless scored his double with two assists from Casey Smyth on the right-hand side.
