Big Kev Goes Irish

Big Kev Goes Irish

Former Wednesday goalkeeper Kevin Pressman has completed a move to Northern Irish club Portadown on a short-term deal to solve a goalkeeping crisis at the club.

The 38 year-old spent last season as number one at League Two club Mansfield Town before leaving the Stags at the end of their campaign.

And he will continue his playing career until January at least after signing-on to cover the current goalkeeping crisis at Portadown which has seen current number one Michael Dougherty hit with a five-match suspension.

Ex-England B international Pressman is expected to make his debut when Portadown travel to Cliftonville in the league on Saturday and will be the fourth goalkeeper boss Ronnie McFall has used in just eight games this season.

The Northern Ireland club play their matches in the Irish Carnegie Premier Division and currently sit 11th in the table after losing their opening game of the new campaign.

Pressman, or 'Big Kev' has he was affectionately known to the Hillsborough faithful, was at Hillsborough for almost two decades and clocked up over 400 appearacnes for the Owls.

He had short stints at a number of clubs including Stoke City, West Bromich Albion, Leicester City and Leeds United before appearing over 40 times for Mansfield Town.
