Tonight's Gazette

Mon, 30/01/2023 - 05:47

Rodney McAree tells the Gazette he wants to get fans on the edge of their seats by giving players a licence to get forward but warns Crusaders, who have been flying under the radar, will prove a tough test while Greg Braniff looks ahead to what he says will be another huge game in what is turning into a fascinating race for the Gibson Cup. We flag up an admission from on-loan striker Ally Roy, new signing Niall McGinn says he wants to keep his Northern Ireland place and the Gazette publishers, the 1923 Committee, conjure up the magic of the Cup ahead of Saturday’s visit to Portadown.

Match Preview: Glentoran v Dungannon Swifts

Mon, 23/01/2023 - 22:56

Tuesday 24th January 2023

Kick Off 7.45pm

Tomorrow night we entertain Dungannon Swifts in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Having endured a very difficult start to their campaign, Dungannon Swifts have started to find their feet in this season’s League campaign, with Saturday’s win over Glenavon at Stangmore Park taking them 12 points clear of bottom placed Portadown and within a point of tenth placed Newry as Dean Shiels’ side look to haul themselves out of the relegation playoff position.

Tomorrow's Gazette

Mon, 23/01/2023 - 17:11

Northern Ireland international Niall McGinn is Beth Stafford’s cover star for Tuesday night’s Glentoran Gazette against his former club Dungannon Swifts. Another Swifts old boy, new Glens boss Rodney McAree, warns that Dean Shiels’ team have individuals who can hurt any team and says that the Glens, even after a good performance at Newry at the weekend, are not in a position to take any game lightly. Rodney also tells the match programme that he is very much the boss while we tell why he is fondly remembered at a cross-channel club.

Newry City 1-3 Glentoran

Sat, 21/01/2023 - 19:28

Goals from Niall McGinn and Jay Donnelly (2) gave 10 man Glentoran victory at the Newry City Showgrounds in today's Danske Bank Premiership fixture. In what was Rodney McAree's first game in charge of the East Belfast side, we made a great start and led 2-nil at the interval. An early Newry City goal in the second half, quickly followed by the dismissal of Paddy McClean threatened to derail the Glens but following a second Jay Donnelly goal the team dug in and thoroughly deserved to come away with the 3 points.

Friday 20th November 2023

Kick Off 7.45pm

The Rodney McAree era begins in earnest tomorrow night when we travel south to the Showgrounds to play tenth placed Newry City.

Since the sides last met at the Showgrounds back in October, Newry City have exited both Cup Competitions (most recently the Irish Cup at home to Championship strugglers Harland & Wolff Welders) and endured a wretched run of form in the Premiership.
