COLERAINE FC can confirm that Emmett McGuckin has left the club by mutual consent…
The striker joined the club from Dergview in August 2019 and went on to score on his debut against Linfield.
In total, the 29-year-old made 14 appearances for the club and found the back of the net on four occasions.
Speaking to colerainefc.com, boss Oran Kearney outlined the reasons for the Magherafelt man’s departure.
“It’s been a tough year for Emmett as we signed him off the back of him having no pre-season,” he said.
“His club side Magherafelt had an unbelievable run in the Championship and we would never begrudge or change that for him.
“However, that inhibited him here during the months that we were going well and then COVID-19 hit in and it’s made it a stop-start season for someone who had been used to playing football regularly.
“His attitude has been fantastic, he’s a top man and he’s been brilliant to have about the place.
“It wasn’t a case of us saying ‘Emmett we would like you to go’ it was more along the lines of him wanting more football.
“It speaks volumes for Emmett that he doesn’t want to sit here and pick up a wage, he just wants to play and we wish him all the best.”
