That was quite a weekend at the Oval.

It kicked off with Glentoran confirming a major investment from a UK-based consortium led by British-Iranian businessman Ali Pour. 

Then there was an announcement club legend Elliott Morris had been appointed goalkeeping coach and would remain a member of the first team squad.

Shortly after that it emerged Head Coach Mick McDermott had signed two players from Croatia - keeper Marijan Antolovic and midfielder Hrvoje Plum. 

Then came confirmation former Celtic midfielder John Herron is staying with the Glens despite interest from a host of other clubs in Ireland and his native Scotland.

Meanwhile, Glentoran Women's two new American defenders were celebrating their friends and former colleagues winning the World Cup in France.

Interesting, international times in east Belfast - and it appears the journey is just beginning...
