Warrenpoint bring in striker Marc Griffin from Glenavon

By Adam McKendry

Warrenpoint Town continued their busy summer dealings with the signing of striker Marc Griffin from Glenavon.

The 27-year old will lead the line for the 'Point next season after a disappointing spell at the Lurgan Blues where he had to be content with a spot on the bench most weeks.

Griffin has had spells across Ireland with Dundalk, Derry City, Bohemians and Drogheda United before making the switch to the Irish League with Glenavon last season.

The Australian-born forward found the back of the net nine times last season in 27 appearances for Gary Hamilton's side.

“Marc is a proven goal scorer and will add top quality to our squad for the campaign ahead," Warrenpoint manager Stephen McDonnell said. “We are really looking forward to working alongside him."

Griffin is the second Glenavon player to have signed for Warrenpoint this summer, with defender Simon Kelly having already joined in a player-coach role.
