Traynor exits

COLERAINE FC can confirm that Aaron Traynor has made the switch to Cliftonville for an undisclosed fee…

The defender ends a five-year spell at The Showgrounds, where he made 151 appearances and scored six times in the process after joining from Warrenpoint Town.

Traynor was named in the NFWA Team of the Year in the 2017/18 campaign and provided an assist in the Irish Cup final success against Cliftonville.

The full-back will also be fondly remembered for teeing up James McLaughlin in his match winning strike against La Fiorita in the Europa League, which set-up a tie against NK Maribor which Traynor started and helped Coleraine progress.

Traynor also collected a winners’ medal in the BetMcLean Cup after starting in the final success against Crusaders in February 2020.

Speaking to, boss Oran Kearney hailed the efforts of the 32-year-old during his time on the Ballycastle Road.

“Aaron has been absolutely outstanding for us,” he said.

“I would like to thank him for his sterling service with how he went about his business.

“He leaves with a mountain of memories such as winning the Irish Cup, League Cup, playing in Europe and the title races.

“He is a great person and is extremely well liked amongst the changing room and we wish him all the best.

“He can leave the club with his head held high and will always be welcome back.”
