Hamilton delighted to sign Griffin as Moorhouse shines at Coventry


Glenavon have swooped to sign former Dundalk, Derry City, Bohemians and Drogheda United striker Marc Griffin. The 26-year-old from Melbourne has agreed a one-year deal with the option of a second year.

"Marc is a highly-rated, pacy striker who has played for some of the top clubs in the League of Ireland," said Lurgan Blues boss Gary Hamilton.

"He was recommended to me and I was impressed with him in our games against Crumlin and Portadown. He is in his mid-20s and I am delighted that he has agreed to join us."

Griffin is expected to feature in tonight's game against the Crystal Palace Development Squad (7.45pm).

Meanwhile, Glenavon striker Greg Moorhouse has hit the headlines during his trial at League Two side Coventry City, earning his place on a pre-season trip to Spain. He played 45 minutes against Sutton on Saturday, enough time to bag the only goal and seal his spot in the squad that will face French Ligue 2 side Valenciennes in Murcia this evening.

• The funeral service of former Glentoran chairman Ted Brownlee will be held at St Finnian's Church, Cregagh Road today at 1pm.
