Con do spirit
Cliftonville Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of Conor McDonald.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who has been capped at a range of underage levels by the Republic of Ireland, came through the ranks at Dundalk and worked alongside Reds boss Barry Gray at Warrenpoint Town before undertaking a scholarship to play College Football in the United States.
“He’s an adaptable midfielder, who can play in a number of positions,” explains Gray.
“At Warrenpoint, I originally had him on loan from Dundalk for half a season and was then able to bring him in permanently after that. He’s been playing in America for the last year-and-a-half but, when he came home, he was a player we’d been looking to bring in and I’m pleased we’ve been able to do so.
“It might take him a week or two to get fully up to speed but I’d hope it won’t take him too long to get settled in. He’s still a young player but he’s someone I believe can give us that little bit extra going forward.”
