The versatile 19-year-old has joined the Swifts on loan from Derry City.

Glynn is looking forward to linking up with a familiar face at Stangmore Park from his days at Ballinamallard United.

“I’m delighted to be here, I can’t wait to get going, meet the lads and hit the ground running," he said.

Swifts manager Dean Shiels welcomes new signing Michel Glynn to the club

"Darragh (McBrien) and I are very close. He would be one of my closest friends. We’ve grown up together playing football at Ballinamallard, playing Gaelic together at St Michael’s and known how each other play. We know how well each other play.

"It was a great move for me to go to Derry City to be in and around full-time football everyday has helped me massively improve as a player.

"I think that will benefit me in my time at Dungannon and I can’t wait to get games under my belt.

"Personally I want to play as best as I can for this Club and give it my all. For the Club I hope to get as many wins under our belts as possible and progress from last season. The only way is up!”

Glynn has a wealth of experience despite still being a teenager, and boss Dean Shiels is thrilled to get him on board.

“Micheál is an exciting young player, he’s versatile he can play left back, left wing back, left centre back and he’s a player that will suit the style."

"He can receive the ball he’s dynamic, he gets forward and I’m delighted to get him.”
