Young Dungannon Swifts keeper Conner Byrne has signed a new three-year professional contract with the club.
 
The 17-year-old broke into the first team squad last season, making his debut in the League Cup tie against Linfield last October and went on to make 14 appearances in the ultimately shortened season, keeping three clean sheets. He has also represented Northern Ireland at youth level.
 
Stuart Addis, goalkeeping coach at Stangmore Park, was delighted for Conner on signing the contract.
 
"It's nothing more than he deserved. He came in last season for us when we needed him to and he was superb. He grew in confidence the more games he played," he told the club website.
 
"Conner is a pleasure to work with, his attitude and work ethic is excellent. I’ve no doubt that he has a bright future ahead of him in his footballing career.”
