Linfield boss David Healy has confirmed another New Year signing with the capture of teenage striker Ruairi Croskery.

The 19-year-old has joined the Blues on loan for the rest of the season.

Croskery follows hot on the heels of Stephen Fallon who has also signed a short-term loan deal with the Windsor Park giants.

“I’m delighted to announce that 19-year-old Ruairi Croskery has signed for Linfield until the end of the season,” Healy said.

“Ruairi comes from County Down and has signed from Manchester United. He has represented Northern Ireland at under 17 level.

“This signing will increase competition levels within the squad and I’m looking forward to working with this talented young player.

“I know our supporters will welcome his arrival and the experience of competing for a first team place within our squad over the coming months will greatly aid his development as a player of great potential and promise.”
