SHANE McGinty has left Ballymena United to ‘consider his footballing options’.
The Sky Blues confirmed this afternoon that McGinty and Ryan Mayse have left the club with immediate effect.
McGinty joined Ballymena in July 2018 from Ballinamallard United, but has found regular game time this season limited.
Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan has previously shown interest in the St Johnston man, but McGinty’s next move remains unclear given the swiftness of the departure from the Showgrounds.
“We always say it’s a long road that has no turns and the biggest compliment that I could pay the pair of them is that Bryan and I would welcome the opportunity to work with both again in the future and we can’t speak fondly enough of them,” Ballymena manager David Jeffrey said.
“We want to say a big thanks to both players for their contribution to Ballymena United football club. Who will ever forget Shane’s goal against Glenavon that secured second place and European football?
“The long and short of it is that over the last period they have not had as much game time as they’d like, and both men committed themselves to travelling a massive distance to training and matches.”
McGinty also doubles up as manager of Donegal League Premier Division side Kildrum Tigers.Tags:
