Glens support Women's Aid 10k by May

Wed, 17/02/2021 - 13:42

Glentoran Football Club is delighted to support the excellent work done by the employees and volunteers at Women’s Aid, so we are very happy to formally endorse the 10K by May initiative run by Women’s Aid in Belfast and Lisburn. We urge the Glentoran Family to support this cause as only we can, to help mitigate in some way the effects of domestic violence against women and children.

What is 10K by May?

Portadown 1-3 Glentoran

Tue, 16/02/2021 - 23:42

Glentoran produced an excellent performance at Shamrock Park this evening with Conor McMenamin, Hrvoje Plum and Jay Donnelly all on the scoresheet.

Manager, Mick McDermott was able to field his frightening strikeforce of McDaid, Jay Donnelly and McMenamin for the first time and the home side struggled to live with them for the majority of the 90 minutes. 

Match Preview: Glentoran v Coleraine

Saturday 13th February 2021, Kick Off 3.00pm

Following the disappointment of Tuesday night’s postponement, we look forward to welcoming Coleraine to the Oval for the first time this season. Glens last win at the Oval was 1-0 in March 2016, thanks to an early David Scullion goal. They are unbeaten in their last 6 visits, recording 3 wins and 3 ending in draws.

Great Charity Work by young Glenman Jay

Fri, 12/02/2021 - 18:45

9-year-old Glentoran 2011s academy player Jay Fisher took on a huge challenge over the lockdown period as he put his keepy up skills to the test to raise money for a worthy charity, CLIC CLIC SARGENT.

Jay, a sporty boy by nature, usually loves playing football, futsal, rugby and boxing in his spare time. But he didn't quite know what to do with himself when lockdown struck, and he was unable to do all the things that once would have kept him occupied on most days of the week!

Glens food contribution to East Belfast Families

Wed, 10/02/2021 - 18:48

Curtis Harvey and Sarah Killops prepare for distribution

This year’s Glentoran Christmas Appeal was so successful, due to the generosity of the Glentoran Family, that it was decided to utilise some of the money to help those in our East Belfast community most disadvantaged by the current COVID-19 lockdown.

So today our Glentoran Milk Bar volunteers, led by Jodie Killops, delivered three course meals to 103 local families who are finding it difficult in the current very trying conditions.

Match Preview: Glentoran v Ballymena United

Mon, 08/02/2021 - 23:27

Tuesday 9th February 2021, Kick Off 7.45pm

Tomorrow night we look to build on the momentum of Saturday’s excellent win over Cliftonville when Ballymena United make their first visit to the Oval of 2020-21. United are currently in fifth place, two points ahead of us. So this one is a real six pointer for both clubs.

Ballymena were beaten 3-1 and 2-0 on their visits last season. They do, however, boast a respectable record at the Oval over the last decade or so and had record 4 wins and a draw from 6 prior to the 19/20 season.

Glentoran 1-0 Cliftonville

Sat, 06/02/2021 - 19:08

For the third time this season a game between the Glens and the Reds was decided by a late goal and what a strike it was, Jamie McDonagh's 25-yard strike finding the top corner of the Sydenham End net. To use an old football cliche, 'it was a goal worthy of winning any game'!

Saturday 6th February 2021, Kick Off 3.00pm

On Saturday we host Cliftonville for our third meeting so far this short season. The previous two meetings have yielded a win each, both with the last gasp winners that have become such a staple of matches between the two teams in recent years.

After an inconsistent run of results in November and December, Cliftonville have been in better form recently - unbeaten in the 5 games played so far in 2021.
