Glentoran Women closed the gap at the top of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership to league leaders Cliftonville Ladies to just four points as they hit double figures against Mid Ulster Ladies at Ashfield.

Imogen Lancaster opened the scoring virtually from kick off for her second goal since joining the Glens. Kerry Beattie and Caragh Hamilton both netted first-half braces for the Glens as they raced into an eight-goal half-time lead, with Imogen Lancaster, Joely Andrews and Casey Howe also bagging goals with an own goal from Mid Ulster’s Amy McGarrity.

Glentoran 6-0 Warrenpoint Town

Wed, 05/10/2022 - 00:37

Glentoran moved comfortably into the Quarter Final of the Bet McLean League Cup with this very straightforward win over Championship opposition at the Bet McLean Oval.

Perhaps with Friday night’s home Danske Bank Premiership game with Carrick. Mick McDermott opened the game with the same starting line-up as last weekend’s abandoned game with Ballymena United. Ally Roy and James Singleton remained unavailable, but Terry Devlin was on the bench following his injury sustained on international duty last week.

Tonight's Gazette

Tue, 04/10/2022 - 12:38

In tonight’s night’s award-winning Glentoran Gazette, manager Mick McDermott tells us that the team started the game against Ballymena looking sharp and incisive and of his disappointment that a deluge caused the game to be abandoned as he felt before kick-off the pitch was in immaculate condition after recent work. Looking ahead to tonight’s game he warns that Warrenpoint have experienced and talented players who have done well at Premiership level, as well as an experienced backroom team that deserve to be treated with utmost respect.
