David Healy - “delighted to announce 3 contract extensions tonight”

Posted : 29th May 2020

David Healy provides good news for Linfield supporters.

"I'm delighted to advise our supporters that in the past week, agreement has been reached with 3 of our players, enabling them to sign one year contract extensions.

The 3 are

Mark Stafford

Daniel Kearns

Shayne Lavery

All 3 were very keen to sign to extend their stay at the club and I know our supporters will be as pleased as I am, that these players have been so determined to show their ongoing commitment to the club.

The 3 players are all great professionals with a first class attitude and they are all really popular in our dressing room.

I fully expect the players to make a major contribution to next season's campaign and of course, they and the rest of the squad cannot wait to get back to full training, whenever it is appropriate to do so.

I would like to acknowledge the cooperation of David Campbell in the contract extension of Shayne Lavery.

These important players who’ve agreed recent contract extensions join several other key players, (including our inspirational captain Jamie Mulgrew), who put pen to paper before Christmas and at the start of this year, Ethan Boyle and Kyle McClean joined the squad.

Earlier this year, one year contract extensions covering next season were also agreed for Matthew Shevlin and Brandon Doyle.

Several weeks ago I reported that Mark Haughey and young Jake Corbett had also signed new contracts and I’m really pleased with the blend of experience and promising youth in the squad that we are building, to take us into the new season.

I will provide further squad updates towards the end of the 2019/20 season and before the start of the 2020/21 season. “
