COLERAINE FC can confirm that Matthew Fitzpatrick has departed the club by mutual consent…
The striker joined the club in the January transfer window and made his debut against Crusaders, before scoring on his first start against Warrenpoint Town a week later.
The former Belfast Celtic man made five appearances in all competitions and was a used substitute in the BetMcLean League Cup final victory against Crusaders back in February.
Bannsiders boss Oran Kearney explained the reasons for Fitzpatrick’s departure.
“When Matthew signed for the club he hit the ground running but then picked up an injury and found it hard to get back into the side,” he said.
“I know how hard it is to travel when you’re not playing and to his credit, he didn’t want to simply take a wage until the season was completely over.
“Matthew is a good lad, easy to work with and was a popular member of the changing room.
“I wish him all the best for the future.”
