Highly-rated forward Mark Curragh has put pen to paper on a new deal which will see him stay at Portland Park until 2018 at least. A fantastic bit of business for the club to secure yet another of our brightest young talents for the long term.
19 year-old Mark is a product of our Troon Under-19 team and he made his debut for us almost a year ago. He had a very encouraging debut season, with notable goals against Beith & Irvine Meadow last term, and he has kicked on further this season adjusting properly to the cut & thrust of Junior football well, so we are delighted to secure him for the long-term.
General Manager Jimmy Kirkwood said, "Mark is an outstanding talent who is very highly rated at this club, and he has a very bright future at Troon. He must be a nightmare for defenders to play against as he's quick & physical, and I'm sure he will be a very important player for us in the run in. With the ability & application he has shown so far, we'll give him the platform to become a top forward in this league. Good young talent, with the right attitude, has always had the opportunity at Troon, and that will be even more the case next season and Mark will be central to that."
Here's to some silverware in those years, Mark!
