Everywhere else it was St Valentine’s Day, but in East Belfast it was Burns’ Night as midfielder Bobby led the way with two goals and an assist in this very comfortable “Big Two”  victory in the Danske Bank Premiership at the Bet McLean Oval.

In Tuesday night’s Glentoran Gazette Rodney McAree reveals he was disappointed at only picking up one point on Saturday despite a wonder goal from Conor McMenamin which put us in the driving seat close to the end of the game at Coleraine and adds that he views tonight’s Big Two derby as a tough task against a talented and physically strong Linfield team.

A wonder goal from Conor McMenamin wasn't enough to take the points at Coleraine in today's Danske Bank Premiership fixture. The Glens had come from a goal down to take the lead with just 8 minutes remaining but a late Matthew Shevlin strike rescued a point for the Bannsiders.

Another Fans Vote for Bobby

Sun, 05/02/2023 - 21:20

Bobby Burns has won his second consecutive supporters’ vote and has been named as the January Glentoran Player Of The Month. In a competitive field Bobby won  with 44% of all votes cast.

Bobby played in all our league games in January and his assists played a major part in our renaissance under Rodney McAree. He has appeared in 29 of our 32 matches so far this season, firmly establishing himself in the midfield for role he was signed for, after filling in for the injured Marcus Kane at left back for most of last season.

Portadown 0-3 Glentoran

Sat, 04/02/2023 - 19:09

The Glens made it through to the quarter-finals of the 'Samuel Gelston's Irish Whiskey Irish Cup with a comfortable win over Portadown at Shamrock Park this afternoon. Two goals from Jay Donnelly and a wonder strike from Niall McGinn decided the tie but manager, Rodney McAree also had the added bonus of welcoming Conor McMenamin back and seeing new signing, Chukwuemeka Uzokwe (Junior) have a decent debut.
