Kincaid makes first signing
Glenavon manager Tommy Kincaid
Tommy Kincaid's Glenavon are bottom of the Premier Division
New Glenavon manager Tommy Kincaid has made his first signing since taking over from Alfie Wylie at Mourneview.

He has snapped up former Northern Ireland Under-21 player Ryan-Zico Black from Conference side Morecambe.

Black, who has been appearing for Morecambe's reserve team, was recommended by club boss Jim Harvey, the former NI assistant manager.

Glenavon's next match is at home to Cliftonville in a crucial relegation clash on Tuesday night.

It will be Kincaid's first Premier Division game in charge of Glenavon and defeat would leave them nine points adrift of Cliftonville at the foot of the table.

But victory would reduce the gap to three points and give Glenavon real hope of avioding the dreaded drop.

Both Glenavon and Cliftonville enjoyed confidence-boosting victories in the Nationwide Irish Cup last Saturday.

Glenavon produced a surprise by beating second-placed Portadown in a Mid-Ulster derby at Shamrock Park.

Cliftonville, without a win in seven games, stunned Lisburn Distillery with a resounding 5-1 success at Solitude.
