Coleraine 2-0 Glentoran

Sat, 11/03/2017 - 22:10

Glentoran made it five games without a win following another poor performance at the Coleraine Showgrounds.

A lovely early spring day at Coleraine and, apart from a bumpy looking pitch, ideal conditions for a game of football, but what Glentoran team was going to show up today?

Le Jeu Avant Tout

Big Night ahead for the Cougars

Tue, 28/02/2017 - 14:22

It promises to be quite a night on Saturday June 10th when the famous Detroit Cougars make a return to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the never to be forgotten tour across North America in 1967.
Organised by the Glentoran Supporters Committee (1923), a very special evening is being planned with a dinner at the Park Avenue Hotel to mark 50 years since Glentoran, under the guise of the Detroit Cougars, played the great and good of English, Scottish, European and South American football in the inaugural Soccer League in America.

Glentoran 0-1 Linfield

Sun, 26/02/2017 - 14:08

Glentoran's hopes of finishing in the top 6 suffered another blow with a narrow home defeat against Linfield. Glentoran's performance mirrored a number of high profile games this season with periods of very encouraging play but a lack of conviction in the final third and sloppy goals costing Gary Haveron's side dearly. There was a quiet feel for a Big Two game with Linfield's title hopes looking bleak after last weekend's shock 1-1 draw with Portadown all but finishing off their chances of catching Crusaders at the summit of the table.

Match Preview

Although six league places separate the two clubs, the previous three matches this season have been much closer than the league places would indicate. A late winner gave the Blues a 2-1 victory in Gary Haveron’s first game as manager in September. We drew 1-1 at Windsor Park on Boxing Day and in last month’s Irish Cup match we were defeated by an extra time winner after the 90 minutes again finished 1-1.
