Portadown FC is pleased to announce that David Douglas is to join Niall Currie’s backroom team as Performance Analyst.

David has been at Ballymena United for 12 years as Performance Analyst during which time he enhanced all aspects of player performance and opposition analysis. During this period he also coached at Ballymena Youth Academy for 9 years and held a position on their committee while also working very closely with David Jeffrey and Bryan McLoughlin throughout their tenure at the the Sky Blues and also with Glenn Ferguson during his time in charge at the Showgrounds.

On David’s appointment Ports manager Niall Currie commented

Unfortunately Dean Crowe had to step down from the role and we knew how important the analysis role is so to get someone of David’s undoubted qualities, talents and experience working with David Jeffrey for the last 6 or 7 years at Ballymena United is quite a ‘coup’ for us.

What David brings to the table is unbelievable and every little advantage helps and this guy is top of the tree in regards to analysis, I don’t think people understand how important this is in the modern game now.

When you’ve worked with the best for the past number of years in David Jeffrey then you know your getting some top drawer stuff, we’re over the moon.
