Ballymena United sign Yohann Lacroix in loan deal

Ballymena have eased their goalkeeping crisis by signing Yohann Lacroix on a one-month loan deal from Crusaders.

If his registration is completed in time, the French stopper will don the number one shirt for United's league game against Ards on New Year's Day.

Regular goalkeeper Dwayne Nelson is sidelined with a knee problem while Stuart Addis suffered a broken finger in the club's 3-2 win over Coleraine.

The Sky Blues currently occupy sixth place in the Premiership standings.
