Lorcan Forde spoke with Linfieldfc.com immediately after signing his new contract with Linfield.
"I'm absolutely delighted to have signed for Linfield today and I can't wait to get started.
This is the biggest club in the country and I've been really impressed with what David Healy has had to say about his plans for the future.
This is a great move for me and this will be a great place for me to develop as a player.
There are great facilities here and I will benefit from great coaching and my aim is to learn and improve as a player and I really want to come here and help the club win trophies.
I can't thank Warrenpoint enough for all they've done to help me this far in my career. I've been at Warrenpoint since I was 10 years old and I've loved every minute of my time there.
I really appreciate all that was done for me by Warrenpoint and I wouldn't have got this move here, if it weren't for everything that was done for me over many years at Warrenpoint.
I just feel I'm at the right age to make this move, as I want to aim to progress to the next stage in my career.
I see myself as a striker or as a right sided midfielder and I think this move is a great opportunity for me. I know there will be lots of competition for places but I think that will bring out the best in me.
I know there's a lot of quality here and I will have to work really hard to get in the team. I just want to make a contribution to the team and score goals and I'm really looking forward to playing in such a great stadium, hopefully on a regular basis.
I'm looking forward to meeting up with my new team mates. I already know Ryan Strain well from international call ups and I also know Mark Haughey and Adam Carroll, as they are both fairly local to me in the Newry area”.
