Glentoran v Cliftonville

Saturday 14th October, 3pm.

This Saturday we finish the first round of league games when Cliftonville visit the Oval.

This one is a real six pointer as the Reds are two points behind us in sixth place. After a mixed start they’ve had three successive League wins against Carrick, Linfield and Warrenpoint.

Special Anniversary Edition of the Gazette

Wed, 11/10/2017 - 19:56

To mark the 40th anniversary of our European Cup tie against Juventus a special edition of the Glentoran Gazette goes on sale at our game against Cliftonville on Saturday.  Our design wizard Clifford Logan has replicated the cover of the Gazette from that night back in 1977 and in the same vein the Bard of Ballymacarrett, Sam Robinson, tells the first part of his tale of reuniting one of those 1970s heroes, Rab McCreery, with his shirt from that memorable night.

Glentoran 0-1 Carrick Rangers

Tue, 10/10/2017 - 22:32

Glentoran exited the Bet McLean League Cup at the Oval tonight with a whimper. It was a poor performance all round and it's difficult to take anything positive from the game.

As early as the 4th minute the warning signs were there; Ben Roy was allowed too much time on the left and his cross to the back post was almost turned in by Stuart McMullan.

Under 20s Beat Crues

Crusaders u20 0-4 Glentoran u20

Glentoran got back to winning ways in the u20 NIFL Premiership Development League last night after their recent defeat to St James Swifts in the Steel and Sons Cup with a 4-0 win over Crusaders at Seaview.

The young Glens were bolstered by the presence of 6 first team squad players for the game against a similarly strong Crusaders side for what was a highly competitive and entertaining fixture.

Ards 0-1 Glentoran

Sat, 07/10/2017 - 20:24

Curtis Allen's early goal was enough to secure all 3 points for Glentoran in their Danske Bank Premiership match away to Ards.

Following the wind down of the camera lights and the comprehensive defeat to Crusaders on Monday night, it was back to reality with a trip to the seaside to face Oval legend Colin Nixon’s Ards side.

Ards v Glentoran

Saturday 7th October, 3pm.

On Saturday we look to bounce back from Monday’s comprehensive defeat by Crusaders when we travel to the Bangor Fuels Arena to play Ards for the first time this season.

Glentoran 0-3 Crusaders

Mon, 02/10/2017 - 22:45

Glentoran delivered a disappointing and lifeless performance on Monday night losing 3-0 at home to Crusaders. Pre match saw a large crowd and an air of excitement around The Oval with the Sky Sports cameras in attendance but the night soon fell flat for the home side as Crusaders dominated. Gary Haveron named the same 11 that drew with Coleraine 9 days previously and Crusaders, coming off consecutive home league draws, made two changes to their side with Heatley and Carvill replacing Glackin and Forsythe.
