Glentoran Women 6-0 Crusaders Strikers

Sun, 05/05/2024 - 21:56

The reigning champions started this Sports Direct Women’s Premiership campaign with 3 goals in each half to comfortably see off Crusaders in their first game in their new home at the Blanchflower Stadium.

The Glens started brightly but it was 23 minutes and a combination of Northern Ireland internationals combined to give the hosts the lead. A super right wing run by Emily Wilson against her former team followed by a low cross was met by   Joely Andrews who sidefooted home.

Glentoran Women: League kick off this Sunday

Fri, 03/05/2024 - 22:04

Sunday 5th May

Kick Off 4pm

Reigning champions Glentoran Women start the 2024 Sports Direct Premiership with a home match v last season’s third placed team, Crusaders Strikers. The team will be playing its home games this season at the Blanchflower Stadium.

The last meeting between the sides was at Seaview in October when a 3-0 win saw the Glens crowned as league champions for the third season in four. The goals that night came from a Demi Vance double and one from Emily Wilson against her former club.

Glentoran 0-3 Coleraine

Thu, 02/05/2024 - 01:28

If ever a performance epitomised a season it was this one at the Bet McLean Oval as Glentoran meekly bowed out of the UEFA qualifiers at the first stage tonight.

Declan Devine made a number of changes from Saturday’s experimental line you with  Saturday’s debutant Callan Farley and young centre half Harry Murphy deservedly holding their places as was Cammy Palmer in midfield after a long injury. Jay Donnelly was the other one to stay on, playing beside the returning David Fisher in a 3-5-2 formation.
