Glentoran Academy hosted the Manchester United Academy on October 3rd at the Oval. This was a night in which a mixture of our U15 & U16 squads had the chance to test themselves against one of the best club academies in the world.

After a good start, Glentoran then found themselves pegged back and defending deep, the Manchester United attackers always on the move and probing at the Glens back four, but they held firm along with two brilliant saves from Morrow.
