WE'RE delighted to announce the signing of Owen McKeown from Crumlin United.

Manager David Jeffrey was impressed with what the coaching staff saw, "Owen had a stand out performance against us in July. He was quick, aggressive in his attack and able to carry the ball with that pace. We immediately asked to see him again during our pre-season preparations and over the last number of sessions we continued to see that quality and even more.
He has experience of the top flight having been with Glenavon when he was younger but then after a short spell injured he focused on Gaelic, and recently chose to resurrect his career in local football. Now he's ready to step back up into the Premiership and we are delighted that he has chosen to join ourselves to do exactly that."
McKeown will take squad number 6 this season.
