Hardbeatnews, LONDON, England, Thurs. May 4, 2006: Former Barbados international striker, Eric Lavine, has been signed by another Irish club despite being let go recently on disciplinary charges.

Athlone Town snatched up the Bajan this week with Town boss Michael O’conner calling him “a great player, who has been successful in Ireland.”

“It's good that he has decided to come to a club like Athlone,” he said on the club’s website. “Everyone is saying that he had problems at Galway or whatever, but all I know is that I've signed a very good player. You'll always be in the market to sign a good player.”

O’connor added that Lavine will travel up every week with Robbie Forde to Athlone. He starts tonight and will be in the squad for Saturday night game’s against Limerick, added O’connor.

Lavine has had a good run in Irish soccer leagues, playing with Longford Town and Galway United. He recently was released from Galway after clashing Tribesmen boss Stephen Lally. The club’s board of directors decided to let him go on April 24 following an internal disciplinary process.

Galway United chairman John Fallon said then that the club had a disciplinary process which included a verbal warning, a written warning and a final written warning, and that when this process was exhausted the club had little choice but to terminate a player's contract.

"This is regrettable but we must not lose sight of our primary objective which is getting Galway United back into the top flight of Irish football. That is what everyone in the club is focused on," he said in a statement last month. –
