Glenavon have announced the signing of goalkeeper Rory Brown on a three-year deal.

The 22-year old arrives at Mourneview Park following a loan spell at Championship side Ballinamallard United, where he made 30 appearances. Prior to that, he spent time between the sticks at Glentoran, Institute and at under-age level for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manager Gary Hamilton shared his delight with the signing, telling the official club site: "We’re happy to have signed Rory, he’s a good player and he’s at a good age too. He’s young, only being 22, so we can get a lot out of him.

"I’ve been looking at him since he was at Institute, but he was snapped up by Glentoran and got the experience of full time football there.

"He then went out on loan to Ballinamallard at the start of this season, after we tried to sign him then, however Glentoran were looking a fee. He signed a pre-contract in January to join us after he returned from loan."
