New St Mirren forward Conor McMenamin admits that his move from Glentoran almost fell through ‘too many times’, leaving his head ‘all over the place’ before finally sealing the switch to Scotland.
The Northern Ireland international put pen to paper on a two-year contract in Paisley this week, after he and his agents made financial sacrifices to secure the deal.
McMenamin revealed his delight in finally getting the transfer over the line after lengthy negotiations:
“For weeks it was back and forth. We were close, we weren’t close. It was off, it was on. It was really hard to take. My head was all over the place for a while but we are here now and I am delighted to be here.”
“Glentoran obviously had a number in their head and it had to be met or the move wasn’t happening. So we all got together and did our bit to make the move and hopefully that will pay off.”
“Great credit to my agents Brian Adair and Keith Gillespie, they worked really hard to get the deal done, for it collapse over something so small it would’ve been a big deal so I’m really thankful for that.”
The 27-year old, cousin of current St Mirren player Caolan Boyd-Munce, hinted to his new fans the type of player they can look forward to seeing at the SMiSA stadium this season adding:
“I’m very attack minded and I like to try and make things happen. I like to get on the ball, try and take my man on and score goals and assist.”
“I’m a winger first and foremost but I think a big reason why the club wanted me so much was that the gaffer sees me playing a number of positions if possible. I’ll just do my best to try and help the team.”
