Cup Fever hits East Belfast

Fri, 05/04/2013 - 15:23

It's been a rollercoaster of a season so far for Glentoran. With the problems off the pitch constantly grabbing the media headlines, the last week has finally seen Glentoran making the headlines for the right reasons: for football reasons. As the build up hits fever point for tomorrow's Irish Cup Semi-Final at Windsor Park, East Belfast prepares to decorate the national stadium in red, green and black. The support received throughout such a difficult season has been fantastic and tomorrow is an incredible opportunity to make it a season to remember on the pitch as well.

Irish Cup Semi Final Day Is Tomorrow!

Tomorrow sees Glentoran face Portadown in the Irish cup Semi-Final, 12.30 PM Windsor Park. It has been years since you have had an excuse to get out that old red green and black face paint, jester hat and flag. Now you have an excuse!

We want to see your pictures of you or any member of your family and friends in your Glentoran gear and colours! Email with your pictures and later tonight (if we get enough) there will be a gallery put on the website of all the pictures received.

Glens suffer narrow defeat

Tue, 02/04/2013 - 17:10

Football is all about taking your chances and had Glentoran done that today then the points would have been theirs. With just 3 minutes played a free kick to Glentoran was swung into the danger zone by Stephen Carson. Marcus Kane met it but his header was straight at Glendinning in the home goal. Linfield broke straight down the field though and opened the scoring. Slack defending allowed Matthew Tipton to get a header on goal. Skipper, Elliott Morris produced a fantastic save, tipping the ball onto the crossbar but it fell straight to Peter Thompson who nodded home from close range.

Derby Day on Easter Tuesday

Mon, 01/04/2013 - 19:59

Easter Tuesday sees Derby Day hit Belfast as the original 'Big Two' lock horns at Windsor Park in the Danske Bank Premiership. Although Glentoran and Linfield find themselves 3rd and 4th best this season, the fixture still promises to serve up one of the big attendances of the domestic calendar and as always there will be no love lost between the two sides. Glentoran and Linfield may not be contesting for the league title but there is still significance in Tuesday's game.

Glentoran host Crusaders

Fri, 29/03/2013 - 11:13

Tomorrow's league game against Crusaders is the final game before the league splits into a top and bottom half. Both Glentoran and The Crues have secured their places in the top section with ease but now the pressure cranks up for the final 6 league fixtures in determining the final positions of each team. Glentoran are lying in 4th position, the disappointing defeat at home to Dungannon Swifts keeping us 5 points behind 3rd place Linfield. Coleraine are 3 points behind us in 5th with Ballinamallard still scraping for their top 6 finish with Portadown.
