Conor McKendry puts pen to paper for Invermen

Sep 5, 2019 | Archive

We are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Conor McKendry, subject to International Clearance.

The 20-year-old arrives at Inver Park as free agent, following his release from Ipswich Town at the end of last season.

Having come through the youth ranks at St Oliver Plunkett and Larne Youth, Conor moved to the Tractor Boys from Glenavon as a 16-year-old.

During his time at Portman Road, Conor made his way through the ranks at the club, being handed a two-year professional contract and representing Northern Ireland at under-17 level.

He will be playing his football at Inver Park this season, and first team manager Tiernan Lynch is delighted with the signing.

He said: “Conor is a very talented young lad, who has trained with us on a number of occasions.

“He was hugely thought of at Ipswich and a change of management there probably didn’t get him where he wanted to go.

“I think he’s a lad who needed time to get home and get games under his belt and he’ll hopefully do that here.

“As a player he’ll run in behind, he can play with both feet and he’s the difference maker in matches – a very exciting player to watch.”

We will be hearing from Conor, fresh from putting pen to paper, on our social media platforms later today.
