Lurgan Celtic striker Aaron Haire has signed for Portadown.

He follows Brendan Shannon and Adam Rodgers who also moved to Shamrock Park a few weeks ago.

Haire’s departure will come as a blow to Hoops manager Colin Malone.

It will be Aaron’s second spell with the Ports having joined them as a teenager.

“Aaron was obviously at Portadown before as a young striker but he comes back now having gained experience around the Irish League,” said Portadown manager Pat McGibbon.
