On the back of back to back league victories against Dungannon Swifts followed by Lisburn Distillery, Glentoran have seemingly put a halt to the poor run of form that plagued October. The consecutive league victories have seen The Glens rise ahead of Linfield and Ballymena Utd into 5th in the league standings. We remain 9 points off Cliftonville at the top but have closed the gap to inside two points of second place Crusaders and just one point on Ballinamallard Utd and Saturday's oponents Coleraine.

Having ended a poor run of form with a late victory at home to Dungannon Swifts last weekend, Glentoran look to build on that result against Lisburn Distillery at New Grosvenor Stadium tomorrow. Andy Waterworth's 50th goal for Glentoran proved the crucial one last weekend as a much needed 3 points was picked up at The Oval. The victory has seen us rise back above our cross-city rivals Linfield into 6th place in the Danske Bank Premiership however notably only 3 points off second. Cliftonville remain top, 9 points clear of us.

Many congratulations to young Academy player Matthew Irvine who yesterday won the IFA Search for a Star Competition.

After impressing in the heats and earning himself a place in the finals at Ashfield School 3G facility, Matty had to complete an afternoon of skill based drills and ball mastery tests under the watchful eye of the IFA judging panel.

For added pressure Matty was up against the selected best from around the country from as far out as Fermanagh in his age bracket of 2001 born players.
