Morgan Day Fifteen Years on

Sun, 19/04/2020 - 19:00

This week marks the fifteenth anniversary of Morgan Day at the Oval.

To commemorate the occasion, and given it will be yet another Saturday without football, we will be running a full livestream of the match (UTV coverage) at 3pm on Saturday 25 April at 3pm.

In our week long build up to the screening, our official social media outlets will have:

"Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner"    

...that I love London so.  Like Bud Flanagan, who sang the famous, morale boosting, wartime song, don’t you just love London town – the sights, the sounds, the night life, not to mention the birth place of Ian and Glen.  But who are Ian and Glen, I hear you ask?

Glens sing Van for the NHS

Fri, 10/04/2020 - 19:32

With everyone in lockdown and missing our Glentoran fix, the Glentoran  first team squad and management has offered up this version of “Days Like This”, written by East Belfast’s most famous son and Glenman, Van Morrison, as their tribute to the tireless and selfless workers of the NHS. Listen and enjoy it but you might want to give Van’s original a listen once you’ve done so.

This weekend the Glentoran Academy 2011 team were due to travel to Brussells to compete in the European Cup. Ahead of their trip they had undertaken a number of fundraising activities to help them finance their journey. With the tournament cancelled, they kindly donated £300 to the doctors and nurses of the NHS based at the Ulster and City Hospitals. This was to thank our NHS workers for their time and sacrifices in fighting Covid-19 and saving so many lives here in Northern Ireland. The boys' message said "We love you all and thank you so much.

At our recent (well, it doesn’t seem that recent) home match with Cliftonville, Glens goalkeeper Elliott Morris passed a remarkable milestone with the club when he became the longest serving first team player in the club’s history. On that date, Elliott had been a first team player for 17 years, 7 months and 23 years to date. That bypassed his long-term teammate Colin Nixon’s tenure of 17 years, 6 months and 20 days.

It's always been speculated that East Belfast's most famous son, Sir Van Morrison, was a childhood Glenman when growing up on Hyndford Street and attending Orangefield Secondary School (in the same school year as our own Roy Coyle). Well in a wide-ranging interview with journalist Martin Chilton in The Independent earlier this week, Sir Van told the world of his family links with the club, his attendance at our matches with his Dad,  and the part Glentoran inadvertently played in his education.
