Town boss Barry Gray has confirmed the arrival of Luke Wade-Slater - the former Stevenage and Bohemians midfielder familiar to Irish League fans from his time recently on the books at Larne.

“Luke is a player that I have spoken with several times over the last 18 months, we were very impressed with him this time last year but unfortunately he opted for a full-time contract at Larne,” said Gray on the official Warrenpoint website. “However, this time round we are delighted to have secured his services.

“Luke is a player we feel will slot right in with how we want to play this season, he’s high tempo, pace to burn and loves breaking lines.
