Glentoran 3-0 Portadown

Sat, 22/04/2017 - 21:37

Glentoran's penultimate fixture in what has been a dismal 2016/17 Danske Bank Premiership campaign saw already relegated Portadown make the trip to east Belfast. Two big clubs who in years gone by would have been contesting at the very top of the table, now sitting 9th and 12th in the league. Glentoran kicked things off on the front foot, and after Eric Foley (3') and Salou Jallow (13') saw long range efforts sail harmlessly over the bar, they took the lead on 18 minutes.

For our penultimate home game of the season, we welcome Portadown to the Oval on saturday.

We are undefeated against the newly relegated Ports this season. In our third game of the season we had a 1- 0 win at Shamrock Park through a solo goal by Kym Nelson, while in November we played out a very drab goalless draw at the Oval.

Our most recent clash - at Shamrock Park in our first game of 2017 - was something of a false dawn for Glens supporters as we had a comfortable 0 - 5 away win through goals from Curtis Allen (2), Nacho Novo, Chris Lavery and Jonathan Smith.

Carrick Rangers 1-2 Glentoran

Tue, 18/04/2017 - 23:30

Glentoran came from a goal down to win at Carrick Rangers on Tuesday night. A second half double from Jonathan Smith and Curtis Allen was enough to overcome TJ Murray’s opener and give the Glens 3 points. Manager Gary Haveron made 4 changes to the side which lost in disappointing fashion on Saturday with Karl Hamill, Salou Jallow, Jonathan Smith and Chris Lavery replacing James Ferrin, Ross Redman, Conal Delaney and Stephen O’Flynn.

Best Wishes To Recovering Players

Sun, 16/04/2017 - 18:00

 On behalf of everyone at the club, offers every best wish to three of our first team players currently recovering from recently sustained serious injuries.

 Tiernan McAuley and Aaron Harmon have each sustained suspected cruciate ligament damage in the past week, an injury that has been all too common at the Oval recently following similar injuries to Stephen McAlorum and Willie Garrett.

Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Glentoran

Sun, 16/04/2017 - 15:52

Following the disappointment of last week's result at Ballinamallard, the travelling faithful once again made the journey west on the M1 in the optimistic hope of not only remaining in contention for 7th place and a European play off spot, but also to see a marked improvement in passion and performance. 

Club captain Stephen McAlorum and the returning Eric Foley started in the centre of midfield, with Jonny Addis filling the centre back position and allowing James Ferrin to replace the injured Tiarnan McAuley at right back.
