As Kris Lindsay leaves Glenavon to take up the manager’s job at Dungannon Swifts, Gary Hamilton, describing Kris as a ‘model professional’, paid a warm tribute to him as the news was made public after last night’s win at Ards, which the Glenavon manager dedicated to his former player-coach.

Kris will, of course, be back at Mourneview Park on Saturday as he takes charge of the Swifts for the first time. As Gary told BBC Sport NI “We’re just hoping that on Saturday he doesn’t come back to haunt us!”
