Former Leeds United Striker Wants Another Crack At English Football

 




Former Leeds United forward Robbie McDaid has revealed that he is keen to try his luck in England once again in the future.

The 20-year-old, who was signed by Northern Irish outfit Glentoran from York City in the summer, joined Leeds’ academy from Glenavon in March 2014 and was tipped for big things when he arrived.




McDaid failed to break into the first team picture at Elland Road, with the Whites loaning him out to Lincoln City during the winter transfer window in 2016.

The striker scored four goals in 16 games for the Imps before returning to Leeds, who released him in the summer of 2016.

 


He then joined York City last November, but failed to make his mark at Bootham Crescent before Glentoran swooped for him in August.

McDaid, who has thus far scored three goals in as many appearances for Glentoran, feels he will get more time in Northern Ireland to prove himself than he received in England.

However, the youngster insisted that while he would like to have another crack at English football in the future, his present aim is to help Glentoran.

“If I’m honest, I didn’t really want to come home from England, but whenever I took all my options into account, it’s becoming so, so difficult for young lads to get a chance in full-time senior football in England”, he told Belfast Live.

“And that’s one thing about the League of Ireland and the Irish League, managers give young lads a crack, and not just two or three games, you’ll get the best part of 10 games to prove yourself.

“Unfortunately in England, it’s so cut-throat.

“But I thought to myself if I come home, I can do the business and get my name in the papers again.

“I’m still only 20 years of age, I’ve still got a long, long time to progress and develop so hopefully somewhere down the line I can get another crack at it but for the time being all I want to do is help Glentoran.”


McDaid’s current employers Glentoran are currently sixth in the league table with 11 points from six games, seven points behind leaders Coleraine.
