David Healy announces news of an exciting new signing.
"I'm delighted to be able to advise our supporters that agreement has been reached between Lorcan Forde, Warrenpoint Town and ourselves for 18 year old Lorcan to sign for Linfield on a 3 year contract.
He's one of the best young talents around and he's certainly a player we've had in mind for quite some time.
We've been keeping a close eye on his progress and we've been impressed by his pace, energy and youthful enthusiasm.
He will provide real options for us in the striking areas and I believe in time he will turn out to be a huge signing for us.
I'm delighted he's put pen to paper and has committed his future to us and I'm really looking forward to working with him when he joins us for pre season training.
I also want to thank the board of directors for their backing in what I'm sure will be an exciting new signing and one which will be greatly welcomed by our supporters.
It's great to get this deal done quickly and professionally and the co-operation of Warrenpoint Town FC has been greatly appreciated. Lorcan will be the first of several new additions to our squad, as we build towards the start of the new season on August 4."
Linfield chairman Roy McGivern added his support for the new signing.
This is great news for our supporters. Lorcan is an exciting young talent and I'm delighted to be able to welcome him to our club.
I want to place on record my thanks to Warrenpoint Town and their chairman Connaire McGreevy for the timely and professional manner in which this deal was progressed to a very satisfactory outcome."
