Rodney McAree is delighted to have signed Liam Hughes for Dungannon Swifts FC.

“I think its a fantastic achievement for Dungannon Swifts to have attracted Liam Hughes to the Club, he is one of, if not, the best U18 Goalkeepers in Northern Ireland, and he is a couple of years younger than that. He has already achieved a premiership appearance with Portadown last season and he comes to us with some great recommendations. We have also watched him on many occasions and are delighted as a club to have a prospect like Liam joining us at Dungannon Swifts FC.”

 Liam is looking forward to joining up with his new Swifts team mates after he has fulfilled his duties with the County Armagh Premier Super Cup NI Team. The Swifts have already a number of players in the same squad, and we wish them well during the tournament. 

Liam told us “I am looking forward to taking this great opportunity, Dungannon Swifts has a great set up with great coaches and very professional facilities. I am also looking forward to being part of the County Armagh Super Cup NI Squad and it will be great to play against some of the best young players from around the world.”

Rodney will be keeping an eye on his new signing at the Super Cup, along with the other Dungannon Swifts Players involved with all the county sides.

Rodney added, “We were very keen to sign such a great young prospect as Liam, especially as he plays in such a specialist position. We felt it necessary to sign him on a professional contract so we knew he would be part of our squad for the next 3 seasons, at least.”

Welcome to Dungannon Swifts Liam.
