David Jeffrey delighted to bring Lecky and Mayse to Ballymena


By Graham Luney

Ballymena United last night announced the signing of former Ballinamallard United duo Adam Lecky and Ryan Mayse.

Striker Lecky has returned from Australia and agreed a three-year deal while midfielder Mayse has signed a one-year deal.

Sky Blues boss David Jeffrey welcomed the new additions to the Showgrounds.

"We are beyond delighted to be able to bring Adam Lecky to the Showgrounds," he said. "When Adam left to go to Australia, he had very much been on our radar.

"He is a physically big athlete who can play at centre forward and in the middle of the park, but what is so impressive is his footballing brain and exquisite touch.

"Ryan caught my attention a couple of years ago at Ballinamallard with his quick play, his skills, his tenacity - he knows no fear and I have watched his career from a distance. Last year we checked his availability and he opted for Dungannon at the time. It was a pleasant surprise to learn that he may have become available again.

"I spoke to Rodney McAree and he spoke very highly of Ryan and was disappointed that he was leaving.

"We then sat down with Ryan and, as we do with all our signings, spent time discussing the journey so far, the vision and where we saw him fitting into it and we are absolutely delighted that we agreed terms there and then.

"We know all too well of his strengths, not least from the League Cup final - he can play wide on either side of the pitch and through the middle with great pace, ability and finishing. He would be a great asset in any team."
