Loan agreement for Parky

COLERAINE FC can confirm that Ian Parkhill has made a loan switch to Institute…

The winger will spend the rest of the 2021/22 campaign on loan at Brian Donaghey’s side.

‘Parky’ made his debut for the club in August 2014 and has made 266 appearances for the Bannsiders, netting 28 times in the process.

During his time at The Showgrounds, the Ballymoney man has lifted the Irish Cup, League Cup and featured in several Europa League fixtures.

Speaking about his departure, Coleraine boss Oran Kearney believes the deal will help Parkhill benefit from more playing time.

“Ian has been a big part of our journey and is one of the longest serving players at the club,” he said.

“He’s had a frustrating season with the form of Jamie Glackin and Conor McKendry, as well as the emergence of Patrick Kelly.

“However, Ian wants to play football and he still has plenty left in his legs and is mad keen to get back on the pitch.

“This is a good chance for him to do well and we wish him well.”
