Swifts Manager Dean Shiels with new signing Micheál Glynn.

Glynn, 19, joined the Candystripes in February 2021 from Ballinamallard United FC where he spent six years with the Fermanagh Club.

“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.”

In his early career, Micheál, started off with Enniskillen Rangers before moving to Ferney Park. He spent two years with the senior squad and played along side our first new signing of the season, Darragh McBrien. Glynn was also part of the squad with Ballinamallard Utd when they lost out to Crusaders in the 2019 Irish Cup Final.

Micheál has represented Northern Ireland at Under age level where he was part of the squad for the U17 European Championships. Glynn is also a talented Gaelic Footballer and was instrumental in the winning of the MacRory Cup and Hogan Cup titles in 2019 with his school, St Michael’s Enniskillen.

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