OMAGH man Robbie McDaid has joined Chorley FC on loan until the end of the season.

The former Tyrone Milk Cup striker signed for the Lancashire club from York City.


Chorley are currently sitting third in the National League North and manager Matt Jansen signed both McDaid and Jack Sampson to bolster his attack for the second half of the season.

On Saturday both players made their debut in the 2-0 win over Altrincham.

Former Glenavon striker McDaid said the move was all about getting more minutes on the pitch.

“I have gone on loan to the end of the season to get games,” he said

The 20-year-old, who joined Leeds in 2014, had scored four times in eight outings for York before making the switch.
