Glentoran have made their first signing of the summer by bringing keeper Ross Glendinning to the club from Ballymena United.
The 28-year-old makes the switch to The Oval after spending the last five seasons with the Sky Blues, making 158 appearances in that time. Prior to that he was on Linfield's books for seven years which included a period on loan with Ballyclare Comrades.
Capped by Northern Ireland at U16, Under 18 and U21 level Glendinning kicked off his career with the Glens as a teenager and is, of course, the son of Oval legend Mark.
Boss Mick McDermott paid hailed Glendinning's arrival on the official club website: "I’m delighted to have Ross joining Glentoran.  He has a wealth of experience in the Irish League and has shown his quality over numerous seasons.
"Everyone knows Ross has history with our club, his family has a strong bond with our Club and when we approached him about joining Glentoran he immediately said ‘yes’.  That, to me, was massive in our decision to sign him - his desire to be at our club and to be successful with Glentoran was transparent throughout our talks. I am very much looking forward to having Ross join the squad for pre-season training."
