Bangor have snapped up former Glentoran midfielder Grant Gardiner. Manager Garth Scates brought Gardiner in from Glenavon, where he had struggled to hold down a first team place. The former Distillery man had a spell at Bangor in 2008, under Paul Millar.

Institute have signed brothers Dean and Stephen Curry from Intermediate League side Newbuildings. The Curry brothers won numerous medals during their time at Newbuildings, including the North West Cup. Institute boss Paul Kee is hoping to secure a few more new faces before the window closes.

Limavady United's new manager Neil Mullan has been busy in the transfer window. Mullan has signed former Institute striker Jason Blackburn, Coleraine defender Stuart McMullan and former Roesiders' man Mark Scoltock. Hugh Carlin and Neil Harkin have also signed for the struggling North West side.

Lisburn Distillery have signed two attack minded players. Manager Tommy Kincaid has brought in Luke Wilson from Ards Rangers and Nathan McConnell from Carrick Rangers. This will be McConnell's second spell at New Grosvenor. He has also played for Linfield, Cliftonville, Ballymena United, Bangor and Ards.

Ballyclare Comrades boss Eddie Hill has signed Liam Prigent from beaten Steel & Sons Cup finalists Immaculata. Hill has also secured the signature of former Cliftonville man Ryan Dunlop from Newington and former Ballymena United man George Young from Wakehurst.
