Mitchell moves from Scotland to Northern Ireland
Goalkeeper Conor Mitchell has cut short one loan to embark on another; he’s left St. Johnstone in Scotland to return home to Northern Ireland with Linfield for the remainder of the season.
It’s not been the best of loans for Conor in the first half of the season. He’s not been able to break into the first team at St. Johnstone but it is likely to be different at Linfield with their regular goalkeeper Roy Carroll, formerly of Manchester United, having suffered a long term injury.
They are managed by former Preston, Leeds and Northern Ireland striker David Healy and Mitchell said on his latest move: “I’m looking forward to being involved in a big couple of months for the football club with a title race and the chance to win some domestic silverware too. It’s a new challenge and one that I relish.
“I’m just going to go in and work hard, try and impress the gaffer and hope to make a positive impression on the team and the club as a whole. Thanks to Billy Mercer at Burnley for helping to sort it all out and I can’t wait to get in and meet the lads.”Share this page :
