Ex-Dundalk, Derry City, Bohemians and Drogheda United striker Marc Griffin has signed for Glenavon on a one-year deal, with the option of a second.

The 26-year-old, who was born in Melbourne, Australia, guested for Glenavon in last week's pre-season games against Crumlin and Portadown.

He is expected to line out for the Lurgan Blues in another pre-season friendly match on Monday 17 July.

A Crystal Palace Development Squad will be the visitors to Mourneview Park.

"Marc is a highly-rated pacey striker who has played for some of the top clubs in the League of Ireland," enthused Glenavon manager Gary Hamilton.

"He was recommended to me and I was impressed with him in our games against Crumlin and Portadown.

"He is in his mid-twenties and I am delighted that he has agreed to join us."
