Glentoran Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of James Singleton from Glenavon.
James (26) has spent his entire career to date at Mourneview Park, having formed a very youthful and effective partnership with Rhys Marshall as they came through the ranks together. He won an Irish Cup winner’s medal in 2014 as an 18-year-old, has played in Europe for Glenavon on a number of occasions and was captain last season
Mick McDermott: “James is a player we have admired for the last few seasons. He is a winner, a very talented player and although he’s been playing centre midfield is a very versatile left sided player who will be a great asset to any squad at the upper end of the table. For someone just about to turn 27, he’s a vastly experienced player who’s been a key player in some very good Glenavon teams over the past decade.
James also has an excellent character and is exactly the type of person we want in our squad. He has a very professional attitude to his game, and we are confident he will play a key role at Glentoran over the next few seasons. Negotiations for the transfer went smoothly and we thank Glenavon for their professionalism.”
Paul Millar, who has worked with James in the past and who conducted the transfer negotiations, paid tribute to James’ former club: “I’d like to thank Glenavon Chairman Adrian Teer for the professional and honest manner in which he handled this agreement. Everything went really smoothly from start to finish. I’d also like to thank Gary Hamilton for his efforts during this process.”
Welcome to the Oval Singo.
