Glenavon Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Massimo Schiavoni. The Canadian joins the club from St James’ Swifts, where he had a short spell.

The 19-year old has played for Notre-Dame-de-Grâce FC in his native Montréal before playing with Dunmurry Rec and St. James’ Swifts in Northern Ireland.

Gary spoke to the club media regarding his signing –

“Massimo came to a few of our training sessions and our goalkeeper coaches Jonny and Reggie had spoken quite highly of him. Obviously with Decky on his way back to Queens, we needed someone in to fill in his place and give Jamesy a bit of competition and a bit of drive for the position so it will be good to have him here.”
