Crusaders have released striker Stephen O'Flynn, who has now signed for TWO clubs in one go.

The former Derry City and Institute hitman immediately agreed a deal with Ballinamallard United, which will run until the end of the season, and in the summer he will join Glentoran, after signing a pre-contract agreement with The Oval outfit.

Mallards manager Whitey Anderson is in desperate need of goals, with his team being the lowest scorers in the Premiership with only 24 in as many league game.

He will be hoping that Flynn can deliver the goods to steer them clear of relegation, after Warrenpoint's six-match unbeaten run moved them to within a point of the Fermanagh men.

In contrast, Ballinamallard have picked up only two points from their last 10 league games and have failed to score more than once in any of those.

"Stephen's record speaks for itself over the years and without any doubt, his experience will be a massive asset to us over the next couple of months," said Anderson.

"His ability to bring people into the game, score goals and provide assists will be invaluable."
