Jamie McDonagh says his summer switch to Cliftonville has given him “a new lease of life” as he looks to build on a promising start at Solitude.
The 25-year-old has teed up three of the Reds’ four goals so far this season and, ahead of tomorrow’s Danske Bank Premiership clash with his former employers Glentoran, is eager to continue impressing.
“It’s been great, it’s given me a new lease of life,” is how the winger reflects on his time with the Reds.
“I’ve had a good pre-season under my belt and the Manager has shown confidence in me to play me in the games over pre-season and the first two league games. It’s good to repay the Manager with assists on Saturday and Tuesday. It’s been great so far, I’ve really enjoyed it and long may it continue.”
