COLERAINE FC is thrilled to announce the signing of Conor McKendry on a three-year contract…
The winger joins the club as part of the deal that sees Ben Doherty move in the other direction.
The 22-year-old started his career at St Oliver Plunkett and Larne Youth, before joining Ipswich Town from Glenavon.
During his time at the Tractor Boys, McKendry would sign a two-year professional contract as well as receiving international recognition with Northern Ireland under 17’s.
McKendry would return home and sign for Larne in September 2019 and made 14 appearances for Tiernan Lynch’s side last season.
Coleraine boss Oran Kearney believes his latest recruit will ‘excite’ the Bannsiders support.
“I’ve no doubt that Conor will excite our fans and be a joy to watch,” he said.
“He started his career in England at Ipswich and returned home but unfortunately suffered a bad injury.
“It is testament to him that he has bounced back from that and continues to impress.
“With our new pitch, I think Conor will fit into our plans perfectly and we are looking forward to working with him.”
Coleraine FC can confirm that McKendry will wear the number 7 shirt for the upcoming campaign.
