Glentoran reward Jason Hill with testimonial

Glentoran have awarded Jason Hill a testimonial season on the eve of their Europa League qualifying game against KR Reykjavik of Iceland.

Hill has spent 10 years at the east Belfast club, over two spells and will clock up his 400th appearance early in the new season.

The Glens are locked at 0-0 with the Icelandic side after last weeks first leg and manager Eddie Patterson is calling for a bumper crowd, along similar lines to that which back the team to Irish Cup glory in May, to come out at the Oval tomorrow night.

"This is another 'winner takes all' situation for us. Our first leg result has given us the opportunity and the platform to compete for the bigger prize of a second round tie," said Patterson.

"That has to be a real incentive for the whole Glentoran family to get behind the team just as they did in May when we brought home the Irish Cup. I know the team will appreciate all the support they get."
