Portadown Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Josh Archer on a season long loan from Linfield.

19 year old Archer, who Linfield manager David Healy handed a first professional contract to in March, has captained Linfield Swifts and scored on his senior debut for the Blues in a 6-0 home win against PSNI in the County Antrim Shield in 2020.

Josh made the move to Windsor Park from Ridgeway at U14 level and was part of the Linfield scholarship scheme along with Callum Marshall who went on to sign for West Ham in January.

Welcome to Shamrock Josh.
