Glenavon are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Rory Brown on a 3-year deal. The 22-year old shot stopper signs for the Lurgan Blues following a loan spell at Ballinamallard United, where he made 30 appearances. Prior to that, he spent time between the sticks at Glentoran, Institute and Wolves U23 & U18s.

Manager Gary Hamilton shared his delight with the signing.

“We’re happy to have signed Rory – he’s a good player and he’s at a good age too. He’s young, only being 22, so we can get a lot out of him.

“I’ve been looking at him since he was at Institute, but he was snapped up by Glentoran and got the experience of full time football there.

“He then went out on loan to Ballinamallard at the start of this season, after we tried to sign him then, however Glentoran were looking a fee. He signed a pre-contract in January to join us after he returned from loan.

“He’s at the stage where we can get the best out of him using the coaching staff that we have in Johnny and Reggie, who were praised by former keeper Josh Clarke after working with him.”


Jack O’Mahony has also also left the club, with his contract coming to an end. Gary told the Glenavon website – “We offered a new contract to Jack, which he declined. He wanted to look elsewhere, so we wish him all the best for the future.”
