Davey’s Back! McMillan Returns to Oriel
Dundalk FC is delighted to announce the signing of David McMillan.
The 31-year old striker returns to Oriel Park after spending two-and-a-half years in Scotland where he had spells at St Johnstone, Hamilton Academical and Falkirk.
Prior to that, McMillan won three SSE Airtricity League titles, an FAI Cup and two EA Sports Cup medals during a four-year spell with the Lilywhites from 2014 to 2017.
In total, he scored 74 goals in 125 appearances for the club with seven of them coming in the UEFA Champions League, a record for a League of Ireland player.
“I had such a successful time here and even when I left I followed the club every step of the way,” he told dundalkfc.com. “My parents have been regulars here since I’ve been gone so I have strong ties with the club and I’m just delighted to be back.
“There have been massive improvements at the club. There’s a new gym, new changing rooms, a video analysis room and a canteen. The current owners came in just after I left and money has been well spent.”
McMillan, who will wear the number 29 shirt, met up with some familiar faces this week and is hoping to be involved in Friday night’s televised clash with St Patrick’s Athletic at Oriel Park.
“I’m fit and I feel good,” he said. “I tried to keep myself going with cycling and running during the lockdown so it’s just a matter of getting back in and playing football now.
“We have a massive squad and that should stand us in good stead going forward,” he added. “Everybody has to buy into this short period of time and give it our all and, hopefully, we will be successful on a couple of fronts.”
