Evan makes loan move

COLERAINE FC can confirm that Evan Tweed has signed for Ballinamallard United on loan…

The midfielder makes the switch to Ferney Park for the rest of the 2021/22 campaign as the Mallards aim for promotion back into the top flight.

Tweed joined the club at the beginning of last season and has made 25 appearances in all competitions, scoring once in the BetMcLean League Cup against Bangor.

The 22-year-old was part of the Bannsiders’ squad that beat Maribor in last year’s Europa League and helped the Stripes secure European football during 2020/21.

Coleraine boss Oran Kearney insists the move will help the ex-Institute ace secure more game time.

“It has been a frustrating time for Evan as he’s struggled with the form of Stephen Lowry and Josh Carson this season, and then Aaron Jarvis’ resurgence of late,” he said.

“The fact that Evan travels from Carndonagh makes things even more tough when he’s not playing and I would convince him to stay if he lived more locally.

“However, it is refreshing that he realises at his age that he needs to play games and we were not going to stand in his way.

“We would like to thank Evan for his contribution and wish him well for the future.”
