Glens next for the Bannsiders

Glens next for the Bannsiders thumbnailAaron Burns will look to continue his fine start to the season against Glentoran.

BANNSIDERS' boss Oran Kearney believes his side 'fully deserved' their victory in North Belfast at the weekend.
“I don't want to sound biased, but I felt we deserved to win the match. Cliftonville were the better side for the first 20 minutes but we missed three guilt-edged chances in the first-half.
“We are delighted to get the win and for Aaron Burns to score the winner after the birth of the son was surreal. It's the same for Aaron Traynor who recently became a father, so to combine that with the three points is top notch.
“Overall we are delighted to get up and running with two wins."
The Irish Cup holders will enter Thursday's Irn-Bru Challenge Cup draw and Kearney is excited about the Bannsiders' participation in the competition that features teams from across the UK and Ireland.
“This is quite different to Europe as the competition is played mid-season and we will want to be competitive,
“The fact you're playing different teams will make it interesting but we have plenty of big fixtures ahead."
