Congratulations to Conor McMenamin on making his 100th first team appearance for Glentoran in last weekend’s away win at Ballymena.

Conor first joined the club from Linfield in the summer of 2015, joining Eddie Patterson’s Irish Cup winning squad as an out and out striker. Playing at centre forward in Curtis Allen’s absence he marked his debut with a wonder strike v MSK Zilnia Slovakia) in the Europa League Qualifier at the Oval. Conor made 23 appearances that season, scoring twice, before falling out of favour when Patterson was replaced as manager by Alan Kernaghan.

Glentoran 3-0 Linfield

Everywhere else it was St Valentine’s Day, but in East Belfast it was Burns’ Night as midfielder Bobby led the way with two goals and an assist in this very comfortable “Big Two”  victory in the Danske Bank Premiership at the Bet McLean Oval.

The Glens showed just one change from Saturday’s draw at Coleraine with Conor McMenamin being given his first start since November and his serious injury.
