McAree swoops to make double signing.

A delighted Swifts Head Coach Rodney McAree has got his hands on two more players just a week ahead of the Danske Bank Premiership starting on Saturday 12th August.

One of these players will come as no stranger to Dungannon Swifts, Grant Hutchinson. Grant has been part of the Swifts squad on several occasions despite only actually leaving once. He departed Stangmore to finish his studies in England to become a Teacher of Physical Education. Which we would like to also congratulate him on. Welcome back to the club Grant and we look forward to seeing you back in the Blue of Dungannon.

New to Stangmore Park but if you attended any of our pre season fixtures you will certainly have seen this player pop up with not one but seven goals throughout our campaign.

Eighteen year old forward, Nathaniel Ferris joins us at Stangmore Park hoping to carry his pre season form with him into the 2017/18 season for DSFC.

Ferris has previously been involved with Portadown, Loughgall and Annagh United and Speaking to us today Nathaniel has highlighted his expectations for the season ahead.

"I'm really happy to be back involved in the top flight of football in Northern Ireland. I'm looking forward to trying to break into the first team, scoring some goals and hopefully help the club do well, with our sights firmly set on reaching Europe at the end of the season."

"I wanted to play for the Swifts as there are fantastic facilities here. It's renowned for being a great family club and I've witnessed that myself, it definitely is and for my own family reasons I think it's the prefect club for me."

Head Coach McAree is happy with his new signings;

"I am delighted to sign both Nathaniel and Grant. Nathaniel is a young lad he's only eighteen years of age and doesn't turn nineteen until the end of the year. He has scored a lot of goals for us in pre season and he shows very good attributes. He is very good inside the box but there a lot of improvement to be made to his game but Nathaniel understands that and he's prepared to work hard for himself. He's one that can offer a lot to us over the course of the season."

"Grant Hutchinson has been here before obviously. We've signed him a few times even though he's never actually left us for any other club! He's a fabulous footballer and in my opinion he's one of the best midfielders in the county. Grant is someone I have a lot of faith in and I think will be a super signing for the club and I hope he will be here for a long time to come."

Welcome Nathaniel and Grant.

Goalkeeper Hughes Signs for Swifts

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

Pictured left to right, under 20s manager Dixie Robinson, first team head coach Rodney McAree and Chairman Keith Boyd. Seated, Liam Hughes.

“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.
