Obituary: John Kennedy

Sun, 18/04/2021 - 18:41

Everyone at Glentoran is saddened to hear of the passing of our player from the sixties, John Kennedy.

John, a right back, signed from Linfield and played 43 first team games for Glentoran, including 6 in the title winning season of 1963-64 when he was understudy to the legendary Harry Creighton. John left for Ards at the end of that season.

Deepest condolences to John’s wife Isobel, his sons Stephen and Kevin and daughter Jennifer. John’s nephew Paul for providing this information.

Friday 16th April 2021 Kick Off 7.30pm

Tomorrow evening we follow Tuesday night’s memorable 2-2 draw, when we travel to the North Coast to play Coleraine for the second time in 72 hours in another six pointer with second place up for grabs in the Danske Bank Premiership.

We need to end a run at the Showgrounds that does not make for pretty reading. Our last win of any sort there was in May 2016 when Alan Kernaghan’s team had a 2-1 win in a Europa League play off semi final through goals from Calum Birney and Curtis Allen, now of course a Coleraine player,

Eastside Awards in association with George Best Belfast City Airport has built a reputation for recognising all that is good about East Belfast and although the awards ceremony could not take place in its usual format, this year, more than any other, the organisers wanted to hear uplifting stories of how the community pulled together and how businesses innovated, pivoted and diversified to survive.

Congratulations Northern Ireland!

A late goal from Glentoran midfielder Nadene Caldwell at Seaview last night, helped Northern Ireland make history in qualifying for the finals of the Euro 2022 in England. This is Northern Ireland’s first ever qualification for the finals.

Dino’s late clincher followed a second half goal from captain Marissa Callaghan gave Kenny Shiels' side a 2-0 win on the night and a 4-1 victory on aggregate in the two-legged play-off.

Tuesday 13th April 2021 Kick Off 7.45pm

The vagaries of Covid-19 lockdown, a bad winter and TV demands mean that Glentoran tomorrow night face Coleraine for the first of two meetings in four days in the Danske Bank Premiership. Both are real six pointers as second placed Coleraine are one place and two points ahead of us, having played a game more.
