Coleraine have completed the signing of former Rochdale striker Rory Patterson from Blue Square North club Droylsden.

Bannsiders chairman Hugh Wade confirmed that the 24-year-old, who is originally from Strabane, has joined the club.

Patterson scored 107 goals in 126 games for FC United - the club formed by Manchester United fans angered by the Glazer's takeover at Old Trafford.

Limavady United defender Aaron Canning and former Dungannon midfielder Michael Hegarty have also signed for Coleraine.

Hegarty was released by Swifts at the end of the season and has previously played for the Bannsiders and Limavady United.

"Aaron is only 17 but he played around 30 games for Limavady's first team last year," Coleraine boss David Platt told the club website.

"He can play in a number of positions and will be playing in the Milk Cup this summer.

"He is a player with lots of potential and should be pushing for a place in the squad at the start of the season."
