Joe Crowe joins Glentoran

Glentoran is pleased to announce the signing of Joe Crowe.

Joe (20) is a defensive midfielder or central defender and joins after spending the second half of last season at Linfield.

Ronnie McFall said on Thursday evening after signing Joe: “I’m pleased to have got Joe and we moved pretty quickly after he negotiated his release from Linfield at the end of last week. He’s played over 40 games at a good level for Norwich City U23s and spent the second half of the 2017 season in the first team at Limerick City in the League of Ireland where he got plenty of game time.

Joe asked to leave Linfield despite having two years on his contract because he didn’t think he’d feature enough this season and he wants to establish himself at Premiership level here. He’s a holding midfielder or centre back and the sort of player we need – confident, hardworking and he’ll bring a physical presence and aggression in an area where we need it.  We know the areas we still need to strengthen so with Conor Pepper coming in last week and now Joe we’re definitely getting there and with a number of players we’ve been speaking to I’m confident we’ll get the rest sorted before the window closes in three weeks.”

Joe’s registration has been approved by the IFA and he is available for selection for tomorrow’s game in Bangor.

A full interview with Joe will appear on over the next few days.
