What happened to the goal keeper I think he played one game for us ? Was it Callum Taylor
Was released mid-season last year.

I think Seaden was seen as a better prospect but they also wanted to free up squad places.

I haven’t see that he’s been picked up but maybe someone else knows more about that.

Does anyone know much about a former academy player called James Meehan, a striker who was available in the annual MLS draft (conducted last week) but appears no MLS club picked him up. Looks like he did fairly well at College level.

I hope he's still playing there. Really thought he looked a good prospect when I saw him, more so to me than Seaden.
He’s my son and I could say a lot about how he was treated mate.. But Fagan has gone and I’ll keep my peace. He had offers after Southend including a Belfast club but wanted to get an education and take some time out. He just got into the NI U21 squad when COVID hit, I’m biased but you only have to read the academy game reviews to know he’s a very good keeper but didn’t get support Harry was afforded.
