More contract news

Duwayne McManus and Chris Kelly are also set to remain at Ballinamallard as Harry McConkey plans an assault on promotion back to the Premier League. Both midfielders have the quality to unlock any defence and again, their experience will be key.

McManus endured a frustrating season with niggling injuries but played a key role in our Irish Cup run, stepping up to the penalty spot without hesitation when the call came. He is also one of the few players to hold medals in both the Irish Cup and Irish Youth Cup.

Kelly, who also scored a penalty when it mattered, will enter his third season at the Club having previously been at Ballinamallard for a short period in 2011. The energetic midfielder managed to nail a starting spot in the team as the season drew to a close and he will hope to pass the 50 Club appearance mark this term.

"Again I am delighted to retain this experience at the Club and the quality of both players was evident towards the end of last season. Having spoken with them, they are determined to secure a starting place in my team for next year and that is exactly the sort of desire I want to see and hear" commented McConkey.

"We are still working hard behind the scenes and Simon Warrington has also committed to remain for next year. He is a young man with bundles of energy and plenty of potential and we are hoping that his pace, work rate and end product will be a real positive for us. I am also looking forward to seeing young talented Brendan Lilley in pre-season. He is a left sided player who was formerly at Enniskillen Town and having recently returned home, he is keen to play at as high a level as he can".
