Moving form Glenavon has been Darren Forsyth. Darren started his career with St Joseph’s Boys and has played for UCD. He has played for the Irish School’s team and the Irish Under 19’s and Warrenpoint’s faithful supporters are eagerly awaiting watching his displays after a substitute appearance on Saturday past on the 78th minute. Also joining the club is Conor McDonald from Dundalk. The 19 year old central midfielder made his debut for Dundalk in September 2011 while only 16 years old. Both clubs are enthusiastic about this young player with Warrenpoint Manager Barry Gray stating, “I have been aware of Conor for a while and he has already proven he has the key attributes to succeed at the highest level.” The last of the trio of signings is John McGuigan who started against Cliftonville and impressed the away support with some nifty runs. John is a winger who plied his trade at Glentoran before joining Warrenpoint. His runs on the wing on Saturday were very impressive which has left the management and fans alike impressed. “He played well against Cliftonville and it is no more than what we expect,” Gray revealed. “We have signed these three lads because we know they can play football. They now have to knuckle down and work hard to get a place in the team. I am happy to add some depth to the squad which you need at this level. He added, “It is a long season and we have some important games coming up in the battle to stay in the Premiership and these guys will help in the fight.”
