McDaid keen to hit the ground running

DAVID McDaid spoke of his delight after signing for the Bannsiders for the second time in his career…

The marksman put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal to join from Ballymena United, in a move that will see Alexander Gawne move in the opposite direction.

McDaid admits the move was made easier due to a previous working relationship with boss Oran Kearney, as well as playing with several players at Larne.

Furthermore, the 32-year-old acknowledged that all parties wanted to get the deal completed and that the timing of the transfer was ideal so he can start pre-season training with the Bannsiders.
