Linfield FC can confirm that Academy graduate and Scholarship student Aodhan Doherty has departed the club to join Blackburn Rovers.

Aodhan has been a key player in Michael Gault's Linfield Swifts side over the past number of season but began to break into David Healy's side this season. Fans will fondly remember his contribution in the BetMcLean Cup match at Inver Park, coming off the bench to secure an injury time assist and scoring in the penalty shootout.

We would like to wish Aodhan the best of luck as he makes the switch to Blackburn Rovers.
