Glentoran Ladies have lifted their sixth league title in 9 years which will again next year take them into UEFA's Women's Champions League next summer and it was particularly pleasing for them to have lifted it at the Oval.
Glentoran travel to Mourneview Park, Lurgan to face a Glenavon side who put 6 goals past Ballymena United last weekend and who sit top of the pile after week 1. Richard Clarke, Jason Hill and Mark Miskimmin have to still sit this one out through suspension and Jay Magee and John McGuigan have both picked up knocks. However Ryan O'Neill and Johnny Addis are both available for selection.
The draw for the 2nd round of the NIFL League Cup was made this evening. Ties will be played on Monday 26th August 2013. Conformation of venue and kick-off time to follow.
1. Killymoon Rangers / Lurgan Celtic v Donegal Celtic
2. Cliftonville v H&W Welders / Armagh City
3. Linfield v Knockbreda / Carrick Rangers
4. Warrenpoint Town v Bangor
Glentoran's U12 team paraded the Foyle Cup at the Oval yesterday ahead of the Danske Bank Premiership game between Glentoran and Coleraine.
The 2001 born lads are making a big name for themselves throughout Ireland, having won the Irish Cup 2 years in succession, and subsequently securing qualification to their 2nd All-Ireland Champions Cup Final next Saturday in Dublin.
The curtain raised on a new Danske Bank Premiership season as Glentoran and Coleraine fought out a scrappy draw that ended 1-1.
The new Danske Bank Premiership season has arrived and as usual your award-winning Glentoran Gazette is here to provide you with all the news, features and stats from around the club.
In this issue we have the latest in our regular look at World Cup winners who have strutted their stuff on the famous hallowed turf of the Oval, with Wolfgang Kleff in the spotlight this time.

Manager Eddie Patterson goes into the game without a number of players who are serving suspensions carried over from last term; Richard Clarke, Jason Hill, Mark Miskimmin, Ryan O'Neill and Johnny Addis all unavailable.

Those who do not notify Ruth of row and seat number - a seat in the main stand will be randomly chosen and plaque attached.
