McCready: ‘I came here to play games’

SUMMER signing Joe McCready speaks to for the first time since joining the Bannsiders from Limavady United…

The striker – who netted a brace on his debut against Ballyclare Comrades – was forced to sit out Saturday’s loss against Linfield in the Charity Shield through injury.

However, the ex-Dungannon Swifts man has targeted a return to action against his former club as the Stripes get ready for the start of the Danske Bank Premiership campaign this weekend.

The 27-year-old admitted he held talks with midfielder Ciaron Harkin prior to signing and wants to force his way into the starting eleven at The Showgrounds.
