Johnny Lafferty has signed for Dungannon Swifts

FORMER Ballinamallard United attacker Johnny Lafferty has signed for Dungannon Swifts.

Lafferty didn’t extend his stay at Ferney Park due to his GAA commitments but this evening he signed an 18-month contract at Swifts.


After putting pen to paper he said, “I feel there is a great squad of players here at Stangmore Park, and that it is a very good club with outstanding facilities.

Anytime I played here with Ballinamallard I always found it a tough place to come so hopefully now I will enjoy life on the other side.

I’ve been to a few games this season and have been impressed with how well the supporters get behind the team, any supporters I’ve met have made me feel most welcome.

Rodney is a dream of coach/manager, I really like what he has planned. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible for me, I can’t wait to get involved when I’m fully fit.”

There was further good news for Swifts this week with Chris Hegarty, Dougie Wilson and Paul McElroy all agreeing new three year deals.

STRIKER Ryan Campbell is set to join Ballinamallard United for a third term.
