Deadline Day Signing
Uploaded Wednesday, 31st Aug, 2016 at 20:02

BALLYMENA United are delighted to bring you some fantastic player news on Deadline Day.
Centre half Caolan Loughran has put pen to paper, signing a one year professional contract with the Club.
Manager David Jeffrey said "Over the course of the summer and the start of the season we have had several young players join up with the first team squad. As things are not everyone is always able to get the opportunity but in Caolan's case one came his way and he has grabbed it with both hands and has put in some very solid performances.
As per the likes of Eoin Kane, Matthew Shevlin and Leroy Millar to name a few, when a young player like Caolan steps up to the mark and shows not only hard work, but a first class attitude then that deserves a reward and he has truly earned a full contract at our club.
Caolan is still young and has more to learn but his desire and commitment is there and we're very excited for his future if he continues to apply himself in the way he has done so far. Tribute must be paid to Paul Harbinson who alerted me early on as to Caolan's strengths and was instrumental in guiding him through to the first team.
Big thanks also to Don Stirling for completing the paperwork and confirming the necessary with the Irish FA prior to the transfer deadline."
