Millar's return is attacking boost for Linfield fans

By Graham Luney

Linfield fans have been given a major lift going into the start of the league season with the news that Northern Ireland Under-21 ace Kirk Millar has returned to the club.

Millar, who was released by Oldham in May, honed his skills at the Blues' Academy before moving across the water.

Former Northern Ireland striker Feeney can unleash the youngster, who also had a loan spell at non-League club Chorley, in atack or on the flanks.

Feeney said: "I've spoken to several Conference managers about him and he's been training with us.

"His signing will increase the competition levels within the squad and I'm delighted he's agreed to join us, as his signing will make the squad stronger.

"When fully fit, he's an exciting player.

"Obviously, he's a wee bit behind in terms of his fitness levels but we won't be long in getting him up to speed with the rest of the squad.

"When we get him fully fit, he'll be a great addition to and valuable member of the squad."

Former Linfield player and Derry City boss Pat Fenlon has been appointed the new manager of Shamrock Rovers.

The 45-year-old is back in management after he resigned from the Hibernian job in November last year.

Fenlon had been heavily linked with the Blues post until Warren Feeney landed the role.
