Manager David Jeffrey was very pleased to be able to announce the signing this evening, "everyone knows Matthew's ability and calibre, and when we looked at what was best for him during the second half of this season, a loan deal at Ards was worth much more in terms of first team development than playing for the U20's team. How Matthew has come on and what he has delivered recently has proven that the experience has been very much worthwhile.
We have said all along that where young players are showing their true potential - we will be watching and they will get their chance. Matthew is testament to that, along with others recently such as Adam McCracken and Kofi Balmer.
Matthew is Ballymena through and through and it is our absolute delight that he has chosen to continue the development of an extremely promising career at his home town club."
