Photo of the week ~ The sparse terraces of Glentoran’s Oval in Belfast


Glentoran 2 Cliftonville 1, 22/10/2016, The Oval, NIFL Premiership

Home supporters on the terracing watching the second-half action at The Oval, Belfast as Glentoran host city-rivals Cliftonville in a NIFL Premiership match. Glentoran, formed in 1882, have been based at The Oval since 1892 and are historically one of Northern Ireland’s “big two” football clubs. They had an unprecendentedly bad start to the 2016-17 league campaign, but came from behind to win this fixture 2-1, watched by a crowd of 1,872.
