The club is very pleased to welcome Glentoran legend Tim McCann back to the role of first team coach with immediate effect.

Declan Devine said of his decision to appoint Tim: “Tim is Glentoran through and through an outstanding coach and someone who knows the values of the club. In my opinion he has been associated with some of the best Glentoran successes in recent years and brings a desire and work ethic to help us build  the squad moving forward. I’m delighted to welcome Tim to the coaching staff and look forward to working alongside him.”

Sligo Rovers Women 1-5 Glentoran Women

Sun, 19/05/2024 - 21:51

Glentoran finished a disappointing 2024 Avenir All Island Cup campaign with this much better away win at Sligo Showgrounds.

Kerry Beattie gave the Glens the lead after 18 minutes when she finished off from a blocked shot from Demi Vance.

Rovers equalised 5 minutes before the break through skipper Muireann Devaney, but the stalemate lasted just 2 minutes before the fleet footed Kelly Bailie brought the ball down before firing home for her third goal in three games. Advantage Glens at the break.

Coaching: Mark Ferguson

Thu, 16/05/2024 - 17:03

First Team Coach Mark Ferguson has left the Club. Fergie joined Glentoran in September 2023 and we thank him for his contribution over the past season. During his time at the Bet McLean Oval Fergie has been a popular figure among players, staff and volunteers, we wish him well in his future endeavours.
