New Signing: Roddy McGlinchey

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are pleased to announce the signing of 18-year-old midfielder Roddy McGlinchey on loan from Sky Bet League One side Peterborough United until the end of the 2022/23 season.

Roddy joined The Posh from Leicester City in 2021 and went on to skipper the club’s U18 team before earning a Professional Development Contract in the summer of 2022. This season has seen the 6’ 1” central midfielder progress into Peterborough’s U23 side and links up with The Diamonds for the next stage of his development.

Roddy has been on Manager Chris Nunn’s radar for a while and he was pleased to finally get his man: “I tried to bring Roddy into the Club a month ago but circumstances prevented it at the time. He’s now become available to us and I’m really pleased to bring him in. He’s a tall, combative lad that gives us options in the middle of the park for the rest of the season which I felt was important particularly when we’re often playing with 3 in the middle and switching formations mid-game. I’d like to thank the guys at Peterborough for trusting us to help Roddy with his development and hopefully our two clubs can form a positive working relationship with each other moving forward.”

Subject to league approval, Roddy McGlinchey is available for selection for Saturday’s Pitching In Southern League Premier Central fixture against Mickleover at Hayden Road.
