All Ireland Champions
The all conquering Glentoran 2004's have this week turned their 2016 trophy winning double a into an incredible treble!
On Tuesday, the NIBFA Cup and Foyle Cup winners beat Cherry Orchard 4-1 in the DB Sports Champions Trophy Final in Armagh with goals from Elliott Wood, Jake Wallace and a double from Callum Marshall.
What a way to round off 2016 for the outstanding Glentoran Academy!
Glentoran produced one of their best performances of the season to fight back and earn a credible point against South Belfast rivals Linfield in the annual Boxing Day fixture. Glentoran having not won the Big Two festive derby at The National Stadium since 1972 went into the game low on confidence following back to back league defeats to Ballymena and Ballinamallard Utd.
The following outlets have tickets left for todays game:
The Streat Ballyhackamore - Approximately 30
Spar Holywood Road - Approximately 90
Spar Ravenhill Road - Small number of concessions but no adult tickets
All other outlets have sold out.
This past week, directors, staff, players, supporters, volunteers & sponsors from Glentoran Football Club went out to the streets and visited several Homeless Shelters in Belfast distributing gifts, once again we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our fans and various local businesses for coming on board this year and we would like to thank you for all donations.
Massive thank you to Jodie Killops for coordinating this on behalf of the club
