McCabe hails McStravick signing
As announced on social media on Saturday evening, midfielder Liam McStravick will this week join the club subject to international clearance.
The 18-year-old Northern Irish prospect moves to the Excelsior from Linfield for an undisclosed fee, and while we will catch up with the player himself as soon as the paperwork is complete, manager Rhys McCabe told airdriefc.com of his delight at the signing.
The Diamonds boss said: “I’ve been after Liam for ages after getting a good look at him last year.
“He went into Linfield’s first-team at a young age and hit the ground running, scoring on his debut and playing in European competition.
“I think he’s very similar to Adam Frizzell in terms of how he plays - explosive off the mark, real quality and balance on both sides, and a real promising prospect with a big future.
“Having the fundamentals, and the right environment here to play, I think he’ll be going down that road very soon.”
We look forward to welcoming to Liam to the club - look out for his DiamondsTV interview later this week!
