Signed in June 2014 from Cliftonville (Northern Ireland), this clever, hard-working striker has a decent goal-scoring record. Quick and capable of taking any half chance that falls his way in the penalty area, he poses a danger to the best of defences. He began his career in Irish youth football with leading Belfast youth team Immaculata, from whom he was signed by Cliftonville in 2008.

He spent a couple of years with the “Reds” and after trial periods with Celtic and SpVgg Greuther Furth in the summer of 2010, he eventually signed for Werder Bremen (Germany) in late August that year. He spent almost 14 months with the German club, playing for their reserve team, before being released in October 2011. A good number of British clubs showed an interest in him, including then Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels, but in January 2012 he returned to Cliftonville in the Irish League.

His scoring rate on his return was excellent and he signed for Derek Adams at Ross County and since Jim Mcintyre took over, he has been in impressive goal-scoring form, having been a key player in their fine 9-game unbeaten run in the Premiership. He is a youth, U 21 and full Internationalist with Northern Ireland. The striker’s form saw him recalled to the Northern Ireland squad by Manager Michael O’Neill for the matches versus Qatar and Scotland.
