Manager, Dean Shiels has moved quickly to bring in centre back Darren Cole from Glentoran, on loan.
Having played previously for Livingston, Morton and then Rangers FC for about ten years before moving to Derry City and then on to Glentoran, Cole is eager to get involved at the Club.
“I play centre back but I can play full back and centre midfield. I played with Dean at Rangers and Derry city. It was easy enough for me to come here to Dungannon as we have a good relationship. The way he plays and the style of play is a real positive thing for me. I am looking to get three points from the get go, it’s about winning games. It’s a young squad but if you start getting points on the board early, you never know where you are going to end up. With the style of play and me being a bit older, I think I could try and help the younger players around me and learn off Dean himself. Hopefully we can have a strong start to the season.”New signing – Darren Cole
“Darren is someone who I’ve played with twice I know him inside out. He’s played at the highest level in the champions league knock out stages with rangers.
He’s a very smart player with the highest quality. In possession and out of possession he brings so much to the team.
I’m delighted to bring a player of his class to the club.”Manager – Dean Shiels
We would like to Thank Glentoran in making this move possible for Darren.
Welcome to Stangmore Park, Darren. We wish you well in a Swifts shirt!
