The Glentoran Academy would like to pass on their thanks to Eddie Patterson and his staff for a great gesture ahead of Thursday nights Europa League game. Nathan Best from our under 14 team recently suffered a cruciate ligament injury that requires an operation and will sideline the dynamic winger for several months. On hearing of Nathan's plight, Eddie invited him into the changing rooms ahead of the game against KR to meet the players and listen in on the team talk.

Behind The Seams - Part 2

Wed, 10/07/2013 - 16:33

Following Clifford’s fascinating interview last week (its here) we wanted to go to the next part of the story, of course that had to be the superstore. Ruth runs the superstore for us so we asked her a few questions on this week’s behind the seams to find out what happens after the design is picked.


So Ruth, where does it start when we are getting a new kit?

Glentoran v KR Reykjavik- Preview

Wed, 10/07/2013 - 14:14

It feels like only yesterday that we watched Elliot Morris and Colin Nixon live the Irish Cup proudly infront of the North Stand on 4th May yet here we are back playing competitive football in early July. The dust has barely settled on last season yet Eddie Patterson and his side have already returned to training, brought in a number of new faces and seen a number of players leave the club. The manager deserves a lot of credit for signing the new players early in the transfer window, giving us the best possible chance to field a full team in Europe.
