Boyce handed Bremen chance

Northern Ireland Under-21 star Liam Boyce has joined German outfit Werder Bremen on a two-year-deal.

The 19-year-old striker has moved from Cliftonville for an undisclosed fee and will begin his Bundesliga career in Bremen’s Under-23 squad.

“This is a dream for me,” said Boyce. “I always wanted to play at a big club in Europe.”

Boyce featured in 36 games for Cliftonville in Northern Ireland’s Carling Premiership last season, scoring 17 goals.

Cliftonville chairman Gerard Lawlor said: “Disappointed as we are to lose a player of Liam’s calibre, we are delighted that he has been able to realise his dream of full-time football.

“We are pleased, too, that the terms of the transfer are good for Cliftonville FC and naturally wish Liam the very best of luck in his future career.”
