Championship club announce signing of former Cliftonville striker David McDaid

Former Cliftonville forward David McDaid has been announecd as a shock signing for Championship strugglers Larne.

The 26 year-old joined Waterford in January but after just one season in the League of Ireland, has returned across the border.

McDaid had been expected to join current Danske Bank Premiership champions Linfield after discussing the Blues in an interview with the News Letter, published on Friday.

“I want to keep winning trophies and my career isn’t done yet,” he said. “I obviously won the FAI Cup, League Cup and the First Division with Derry and, having won the First Division with Waterford last year, I just feel it’s the right time to go to Linfield, I could have went there when I was at Cliftonville and I regret it because they went on to win the treble.”

McDaid also spoke of his desire to work with Linfield boss David Healy and called the club one of, if not the biggest in Ireland.

However, just a day later, McDaid has been unveiled by the Championship's basement side Larne FC, who recently received investment from co-founder of Purplebricks Kenny Bruce.
