BALLYMENA United are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Daniel McIlhatton from Moyola Park.
The 24 year old midfielder joins after being scouted for some time, and was also subject of interest from a number of other clubs.
Manager David Jeffrey, "Daniel is an excellent addition to the squad, he's tall, powerful, quick and has impressed in training and during our preseason friendly against Moyola.
Our interest in Daniel goes back a couple of seasons as David Douglas has been keeping an eye on his progress. When we felt the time was right to approach Moyola in relation to taking our interest further he and Paul McAreavey were able to take this forward and work with Moyola and Daniel in terms of a move to Ballymena United.
His attitude is top class, he has performed very well there and is now looking for the opportunity to step up into senior football. We weren't the only club interested in him, so it is very pleasing that he has chosen to continue his football journey here and we're delighted to have him in our ranks."
Both manager David Jeffrey and David Douglas praised Moyola for the smooth transfer, "We want to pay tribute to Moyola and in particular to Mervyn Pattison for their professional manner and how they handled Daniel's progression to senior football. We have a good relationship with Moyola and look forward to that continuing well into the future."
