Bradley happy to be back at Showgrounds thumbnailColeraine manager Oran Kearney is looking to further strengthen his playing squad after completing the signing of striker Eoin Bradley from Glenavon on Monday.

FORMER Coleraine striker Eoin Bradley admits he 'can't wait to get started' after signing a two and a half contract with the club on Monday. Bradley, who scored 12 goals in 23 appearances for the Bannsiders in 2013-14 prior to a move to Glenavon, is expected to be in the visitors' squad for this evening's visit to Linfield.
“I'm looking forward to getting started and hopefully this is the start of something good," said Bradley, who moved from the Lurgan Blues for an undisclosed fee.
“Coleraine are not far away - they play good football and I'd like to see us push us and secure a place in the top six and have a good cup run in the second half of the season.
“There's a lot of good young players at the club and maybe my experience will help them.
“It wasn't easy leaving Glenavon as I had a lot of good friends there but that's football. It's time to move on and I'm delighted to be back at Coleraine," he added.
Coleraine manager Oran Kearney has welcomed Bradley's return and hasn't ruled out adding to his squad in the transfer window.
“There's only a small pool of players in Northern Ireland so we're delighted to get someone with Eoin's quality in," he said.
“He knows a lot of the boys from before and he'll add a bit of experience up front.
“We have a couple more possible signings but we'll keep working away and see what happens. We'd be keen to bring players in.
