The 23-year-old, who joined Europa in 2018, firmly established himself as his club’s number 1 last season, while also making his international debut last September against Denmark, and the keeper now makes the move to the Northern Irish Premier Division, to join Glentoran on what is believed to be a 3-year contract.
Coleing will be signing in time for Glentoran’s Europa League campaign, where they were drawn against Faroese side HB Torshavn – the then 17-year-old Coleing was on the bench for former team Lincoln for both legs against the same opposition back in 2014.
Europa are believed to have moved quickly and have already lined up a replacement for the goalkeeper, in time for their Champions League campaign where they face a tough away tie against former European Champions Red Star Belgrade next week.
Coleing joins Colin Ramirez in the list of Gibraltarians to have played for the Glens, as they are nicknamed, and also joins a growing list of young Gibraltarians now plying their trade outside of the Rock.
