Pat McGibbon has expressed his delight at joining the Portadown backroom staff.
Club officials have confirmed the addition of the former Northern Ireland international - with McGibbon expected to travel with the team to Saturday’s Danske Bank Premiership game against Coleraine.
“I am delighted to be back at Portadown,” said McGibbon, who enjoyed a decade in professional football. “I have spent time at Portadown before, as a youth player then part of the first-team squad, so am pleased to now be back as physio.
“Ronnie McFall spoke to me recently and he is someone I hold in the highest regard.
“He asked me to come in and I am happy to help the club in any way possible.”
