Glenavon FC is delighted to announce the signing of Robert Garrett from Linfield.

Gary Hamilton has signed the vastly experienced Linfield midfielder on a two and a half year deal. “Robert is a player I tried to sign when he left Portadown to re-join Linfield in 2017,” the Glenavon boss told the website today. “I’m delighted to get him over the line. He’s a guy with massive experience of this league and thankfully, now we’ve got him, I think he’ll add to us and be a big lift around the Club which we need at this minute in time. Hopefully he will go on and perform they way I know he can.”

Garrett made his Linfield debut in September 2008 and scored his first goal later that month. He was awarded the first of five NI caps in June 2009 and made the final appearance of his first spell with Linfield in a 5-2 victory against Glenavon at Mourneview Park in April 2014, joining Portadown on a three year deal in May that year. He re-joined Linfield in May 2017 and made his 250th appearance for the Club in a 2-0 win against Cliftonville at Solitude in December 2018.
