Loughgall hope to complete the signing of Institute’s Matty Young in the next few days.
It has been a good week for the Lakeview Park side, the bulk of the squad signing up this week.
“We hope to complete the signing of Matty over the next couple of days,” says joint manager Steven Hawe.
“Matty can play at either left or right fullback which gives us options.
“We also have five players training with us and I expect we will add a few more to the squad next week.
“Ideally we would like to work with a squad of 18 to 20.”
Loughgall could not hope for two better friendlies to kick-start their pre-season.
Next Thursday night they host Dungannon Swifts in the Ivan Marshall Trophy at 7.30pm and then on Saturday, July 18 Linfield come to Lakeview Park, kick-off 2.00pm.
“These are two tough games for us, but you would not want it any other way. It will give us a good base to work from.”
