Dundalk Agree Lennon Deal
Dundalk today agreed terms with former Rangers and Lincoln City striker Steven Lennon. The 22 year old is set to form part of Ian Foster’s squad for the remainder of the season.
Speaking to dundalkfc.com on Saturday afternoon, Steven explained how the move happened: “I was at Rangers and then on loan last season at Lincoln. They offered me a deal but it got muddled up and was taken off the table. I had played with Tom Millar at Rangers and he told me about Dundalk FC. He spoke very highly of the club and said he was enjoying it. I came over for a week and the manager spoke to Rangers. They spoke highly of me to him and I was offered a deal. It is important for me to get settled at a club as I need to be playing football at my age.”
The Irvine native also revealed his hopes for the remainder of the season. “I have played in Scotland and League 2 – the pitch is good and flat which is great for good football. I watched the last two games. I was impressed with the lads. I hope to get as many games as I can and score goals for the rest of the season. We’ll see what happens in October when the season ends”.
Dundalk FC Club Communication Officer Colm Crosson stated: “Steven is a very important acquisition. He has showed a lot of potential and is in demand across the water. He is a real prospect.”
