MACCA ON THE MOVE: FORMER HARPS STAR JOINS SOUTHEND UNITED

first_imgFormer Finn Harps FC and Derry City player Stephen McLaughlin has left Nottingham Forest and has signed for Southend United FC. McLaughlin enjoyed a hugely successful loan spell with Southend and his goal in the play-off semi-final secured their place in the final at Wembley.Southend manager Phil Brown had been hugely impressed by his performances and was keen to acquire the services of McLaughlin for the season ahead. After weeks of negotiations McLaughlin and his team of advisers finally pushed through the transfer with just a few days of the window still open.McLaughlin’s move to Nottingham Forest never really took off since he signed with them in January 2013.He spent the majority of his time at the City Ground on loan to lower league clubs.There was a huge influx of managers during his two-year stint and a lot of unrest during that period which didn’t help the talented Donegal midfielder. However, McLaughlin will be delighted to have secured the two-year deal at Southend and will hope he can cement a regular place in the side.MACCA ON THE MOVE: FORMER HARPS STAR JOINS SOUTHEND UNITED was last modified: August 28th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSportlast_img
