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.
