SAINTS SIGN STRIKER MCMILLAN

St Patrickís Athletic have completed the signing of former UCD striker David McMillan.

McMillan joins his brother Evan in the Saints squad ahead of the 2011 Airtricity League season and he becomes the 14th player to be signed by Pete Mahon.

Having played schoolboy soccer with Templeogue United, the 22 year old signed for UCD in the summer of 2008 and was called into the Irish U-23 squad late last year.

McMillan took time out today to talk with STPATSFC.COM on joining the Saints:

"For the last two months I had been travelling around Asia through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand and was on holidays when I heard Patís were interested in me.

"My brother Evan had signed and Pete had then enquired about me. Thankfully he was able to make contact and a deal was done pretty quickly.

"I had played one season under Pete at UCD, as a manager he is totally committed, works extremely hard and expects the same from his players and Iím sure that hasnít changed.

"You could see that in how he set up his teams last season Ė very strong, very hard to play against and Iím delighted now to be a part of all that.

"I played a bit on the wing last season but up front would be my preferred position so I was delighted to hear Pete say thatís where he wants me to play.

"Last season I scored 8 or 9 goals but I missed about 12 weeks out with an injury.

"I scored in both matches at the Belfield Bowl against Patís but I donít have too many happy memories of the other games at Richmond Park.

"UCD had being doing well up to a point last year and then players started to pick injuries, while we had a strong team we had a thin squad.

"At UCD I went from playing in the A championship team to playing in the first division and then to the premier and while Iíve enjoyed my time there I really want to push on now and challenge for medals.

"There is a good squad of players at Patís, competition for places will be tough and it will be a real test for me to try and impress but you look at the impact a player like David McAllister made at the club last year.

"Itís definitely more enjoyable having a brother in the same team, you tend to talk with each other after a game about what you did right what you need to work on and I suppose it saves the rest of the family having to choose which game to go to!

"Iíll be starting back in college again but I enjoyed the holiday - it was a real breakaway.

"Two weeks ago I was trekking through forests in Cambodia and getting lost so itís good to be back and facing into a new challenge!"
