Danny Wallace joins United on loan

BALLYMENA United are delighted to announce that we have completed the loan signing of Daniel Wallace from Linfield.
Manager David Jeffrey said "Daniel joined the club on the strong recommendation of Paul McAreavey who knows him well from when he managed him at Donegal Celtic, and latterly he and Pat McShane brought him to Linfield. He's naturally a left back and in bringing Daniel here it strengthens the squad in that position."

"When we spoke to Daniel, as with all players, we went through the same interview process and he bought into our vision and agreed to come. He wants to get games and here he will get that opportunity although, as with every player, he's only guaranteed that should he work hard and merit a place in this team. One of the most important aspects of all our signings to date is that we are creating competition for places in the starting eleven and signing someone of Daniel's talent is another piece in the jigsaw in that respect.
Several clubs have tried to get Daniel on loan, and when we approached Linfield it was clear that there was no pressure on him for whom he should sign. We are extremely appreciative to David Healy and Linfield for allowing him to go out on loan and entrusting us to look after his development as a top flight player. In return we will benefit from having a young energetic man who is hungry to prove himself week in, week out at the highest level.
Finally once again can I pay tribute and thanks to our sports therapist Gordon McCartney and Dr. Brian Patterson who made themselves available for the necessary medical in order to complete the process of signing Daniel."
