The family of Lisburn Distillery star Ryan Corrigan have thanked the club and Whites fans for their support and donations towards the cost of the young midfielder’s recent operation.

Corrigan came safely through an operation on his cruciate ligament on Friday February 6, the same day a special ‘Night at the Races’ event was held by the club, which saw funds going towards the cost of the operation.

The midfielder’s mother commented: “The Corrigan family wish to thank the club, directors, officials, manager, staff and supporters for their donation towards the cost of the operation.

“It is very much appreciated and we can’t thank them enough for all they’ve done so far.”

The 19 year old, who signed for the Whites from Glenavon, could be sidelined for six months.

In a statement, the club said: “On the subject of Ryan Corrigan, the club are delighted to announce that our young midfielder has successfully come though his recent operation. We wish Ryan well in his recovery and look forward to seeing him once again in a Lisburn Distillery shirt in the near future.”
