Glenavon sign former Derry City winger

By Gareth Hanna

Glenavon have sealed the signing of former Derry City winger Josh Daniels.

The 21 year-old suffered tragedy when five members of his family including his mother Ruth and sister Jodie died at Buncrana Pier in March 2016 but Josh made a courageous return to football less than two months later.

Daniels has struggled to earn a spot in Kenny Shiels' team this season and left City earlier this month to consider his future. On ending his spell with the club, he said: "I want to say all the best to the lads. Hopefully they can push on and get Europe this year, as it's the least they deserve. It's a massive decision for me to leave Derry after 5 years at the club. It's all I know, but now it's time to move on and experience something else. I'm excited about what's next to come in life."

Now his former club have announced Daniels has completed his move to Glenavon.
