SEASIDERS MAKE CUSHNIE CAPTURE

    BANGOR have acted in the transfer market with the signing of forward Ben Cushnie from Glentoran. A dynamic player that can operate across any of the front three positions, the season-long loan move for the 21 year-old was confirmed yesterday evening as manager Lee Feeney bids to bolster his squad for a return to the Championship in just over a week’s time. Cushnie’s arrival at Clandeboye Park follows a spell at Dungannon Swifts last term, where he scored four times and made a total of 29 appearances for the Premiership side. The attacker, who spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Ards, has 23 appearances for Glentoran to his name since first making his debut for the east Belfast club in October 2020. In 2021, after netting in a late season win over Crusaders, Cushnie was hailed by then-Glentoran chief Mick McDermott as being “something special”. He is the second signing made by Bangor manager Lee Feeney so far this summer after the capture of ex-Ballymena midfielder Jack Henderson. The Seasiders have also tied down the vast majority of last season’s doublewinning squad, with Fenney hinting at further incomings before the window shuts at the end of next month.
