A late goal from Glentoran midfielder Nadene Caldwell at Seaview last night, helped Northern Ireland make history in qualifying for the finals of the Euro 2022 in England. This is Northern Ireland’s first ever qualification for the finals.

Dino’s late clincher followed a second half goal from captain Marissa Callaghan gave Kenny Shiels' side a 2-0 win on the night and a 4-1 victory on aggregate in the two-legged play-off.

Glentoran 2-2 Coleraine

The Glens and the Bannsiders played out an entertaining 2-all draw at the Oval this evening in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Prior to kick off, both teams, management and club officials present in the stadium, observed a two-minute silence as a mark of respect to His Royal Highness Prince Philip who sadly passed away last Friday.

Match Preview: Glentoran v Coleraine

Mon, 12/04/2021 - 23:26

Tuesday 13th April 2021 Kick Off 7.45pm

The vagaries of Covid-19 lockdown, a bad winter and TV demands mean that Glentoran tomorrow night face Coleraine for the first of two meetings in four days in the Danske Bank Premiership. Both are real six pointers as second placed Coleraine are one place and two points ahead of us, having played a game more.

Letter from the Lord Lieutenant

The club this morning received the following letter from Fionnuala Jay-O'Boyle, Lord Lieutenant of Belfast

Subject: From The Office of HM's Lord Lieutenant of The Co Borough of Belfast

Good Morning Mr Henderson,

May I express my sincere appreciation of the message of condolence on the passing of The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh from The Board, supporters and team at Glentoran Football Club which you kindly sent to the Lieutenancy.

Statement from the Board of Directors

As a club, Glentoran FC chose to mark the sad passing of HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh in a dignified and respectful manner, with the lowering of the Union Flag and Glentoran Flag to half-mast and through sending condolences to Her Majesty The Queen.  However as a club we recognise the depth of feeling across much of our support base and wider community was for a more public mark of respect to be displayed. There has been dangerous and baseless commentary since yesterday’s match suggesting this was a snub or that any part of the club was against such a mark of respect.

Club Statement

The Board of Directors of Glentoran Football Club has been made aware of some comment on the club’s commemoration of the sad passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

In the interests of clarity, immediately on hearing of the Duke’s passing yesterday, the Board instructed the Groundsman to lower the Union Flag and Glentoran Flag at the Oval to half-mast. This was done on Friday afternoon and the flags will remain at half mast for the duration of the National Period of Mourning.

Glentoran 2-0 Dungannon Swifts

Sat, 10/04/2021 - 18:59

There was just one change to the starting line up from the team which took the field at the Ballymena Showgrounds last Tuesday evening. Caolan Marron was on the bench for today’s game with Hrvoje Plum coming into the midfield and Rhys Marshall dropping into the right-back slot.

Ballymena Utd 2-2 Glentoran

Tue, 06/04/2021 - 23:10

With 12 minutes remaining, Glentoran led 2-nil and looked like securing the 3 points which would have seen them climb to 2nd in the Danske Bank Premiership. A late Shay McCartan strike and an even later penalty, converted by the same player, meant that we could only leave the Showgrounds with a solitary point.
