Glentoran Community Trust

Glentoran Community Trust (web) is a supporters trust formalised in 2006. This mural celebrates the 125th anniversary of the club and highlights from its past, starting with the 1914 Vienna Cup (GFC). On the right of the mural, the Detroit Cougars were a locally-branded Glentoran team participating in a short-lived USA league playing during the summer (BelTel). The “proudest moment” (centre bottom) is the 1973-1974 Cup Winner’s Cup, in which Glentoran got through two rounds to reach the quarter finals (where they lost to Borussia Mönchengladbach). Famous players from the past are featured below the advertising hoarding, including Danny Blanchflower who began his career at Glentoran (WP).
