Another 19-year-old, O'Hare also arrives from Linfield. The centre-back was another member of the Steel Cup winning squad, having worked his way through the Academy ranks at the club.
 
Glover, 19, returns to Northern Ireland after a spell playing for City of Liverpool FC in the Northern Premier League. The left-back was formerly with HW Welders and Glentoran before his trip across the Irish Sea.
 
Green, at 21 the oldest of the four new arrivals, was most recently with Lisburn Distillery having joined at the end of January but due to the lack of playing opportunities only made one appearance for the Whites. Prior to that the striker clocked up 21 appearances in the Championship for PSNI.
