Linfield boss Warren Feeney believes loan signing Jamie Richards is another positive arrival at Windsor Park.

Richards has joined the Blues from Plymouth Argyle to the end of the year.

The 20-year-old defender played alongside Feeney during the Linfield manager’s time at Plymouth.

“I was interested in Jamie when I was with Salisbury,” Feeney said.

“He is enthusiastic and has a good background in football. He is one I really excited about and I feel he can help and develop this club.

“He has got pace, is quick and wants to play football.

“He will be in on loan initially to Christmas. I know he will do well and hopefully we can extend the deal.

“Other clubs wanted him on loan, but thankfully he has come to Linfield.

“He knows me and how I work, so I am excited that he has chosen Linfield.”
