Coleraine manager Oran Kearney has made his second signing of the summer by bringing Evan Tweed to The Showgrounds.

The 21-year-old midfielder joins the Bannsiders from Institute, for whom he impressed in his 21 appearances last season, scoring once in the draw away to Dungannon Swifts just before Christmas. Prior to that he had been on Derry City's books.

Kearney was delighted to get his man after keeping tabs on him over the course of the 2019/20 campaign.

"Evan was a player we became aware of last season," he told the official Coleraine website.

"We played Institute twice after Christmas and he impressed in both games and I remember watching him closely in the 4-0 win back in February and thought we should monitor his progress.

"I spoke to plenty of people about him and they all gave great reviews and he has just completed his first season in senior football. He is energetic, technically very good on the ball and hungry to do well."
