McKendry Joins Larne
Thursday, 5th Sep 2019 17:13
Released Blues youngster Conor McKendry has joined Larne back in his native Northern Ireland.
McKendry, 20, joined the Blues academy at 16 having previously been with Glenavon.
The midfielder, who was released in May and subsequently had a trial with Bohemians Prague, played for the Town first-team in friendlies during pre-seasons but was unable to break into the side for competitive games, although he was an unused sub for the Carabao Cup match at Crystal Palace in August 2017.
“Conor is a very talented young lad, who has trained with us on a number of occasions,” Larne manager Tiernan Lynch said.
“He was hugely thought of at Ipswich and a change of management there probably didn’t get him where he wanted to go.
“I think he’s a lad who needed time to get home and get games under his belt and he’ll hopefully do that here.
“As a player he’ll run in behind, he can play with both feet and he’s the difference maker in matches – a very exciting player to watch.”
