At precisely a couple of minutes prior to the midnight deadline last night Glenavon signed experienced midfielder Eric Foley, cousin of Adam, after he had negotiated his release from Glentoran. The 28 year old is a former captain of Drogheda United and prior to joining the Glens he played for Galway United as well as a number of other League of Ireland clubs. He lives in County Louth and is eligible to play in this season’s Irish Cup.
