Glentoran v Linfield: Saturday 25 February: Club Statement

Thu, 23/02/2017 - 14:04

Reference today's article in the Belfast Telegraph over a call by a group of Linfield supporters.

Glentoran FC has at no point made any comment or complaint - direct or indirect -  to any source about the pre match playlist at Windsor Park on Boxing Day.
Had either the newspaper or the Linfield Supporters Trust made contact with the club this would have been immediately and clearly explained.

The relationship between Glentoran and Linfield is a healthy one based on football rivalry. Glentoran's interest is on defeating Linfield and our other rivals on the pitch.

Cliftonville 1-1 Glentoran

Sat, 18/02/2017 - 10:29

With this being the first Irish League game shown on Sky Sports in a couple of years, both teams will have wanted to show what they could do in front of a nationwide audience. Glentoran, after a solid if a little frustrating point on Saturday against Glenavon, were looking to claw their way into the top six ahead of the approaching league split. Unfortunately, in the warm-up Marcus Kane suffered an injury and was replaced by Aaron Harmon.

Danske Bank Premiership, Cliftonville V Glentoran     

Friday 17th February 2017, kick-off 7.45pm.

This week we visit Solitude to play Cliftonville for the third time this season in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Although the Reds are currently five places above us in the table, honours are even in our meetings this season with one win each. We were beaten 2-0 at Solitude in August while second half goals from Nacho Novo and Steven Gordon turned around an early deficit into a 2-1 home win in October.

Prior to last weekend's Danske Bank Premiership fixture against Glenavon the Glentoran Supporters Committee (1923) presented a cheque for £2500 to the parent body to assist with costs for training facilities.

The cheque was handed over by Jimmy Carter, Chairman of the Glentoran Supporters Committee (1923) and Norman Ternahan (Glentoran Gazette) to Glentoran Chairman, Stephen Henderson and manager, Gary Haveron.

Glentoran 0-0 Glenavon

Sat, 11/02/2017 - 20:54

Glentoran and Glenavon played out a 0-0 draw on a bitterly cold afternoon at The Oval today. It was a game which both teams had chances to win but they failed to take them and neither manager is likely to be particularly happy with a point. Gary Haveron made four changes from the side which lost at home to Ballinamallard a fortnight ago as Birney, Harmon, O’Flynn and Caldwell were replaced by Ferrin, McAlorum, Smith and Gordon.

Obituary: Eric Graham

Tue, 31/01/2017 - 02:02

We are sorry to report the death of Eric Graham, a long standing member and past Chairman of the Cookstown Glentoran Supporters’ Club.

The Tyrone men are a fantastic example of committed supporters, making a minimum 90 mile round trip to East Belfast, week in and week out in all conditions and irrespective of team form. Eric has always been prominent among them and will be sadly and deeply missed by all of his travelling friends.

Current Cookstown GSC Chairman, Michael RJ Wilson said today:
