Transfer news: Kilmarnock sign defender Mark Connolly
Last Updated: 11/07/14 5:07pm
Kilmarnock have signed former £1m-rated central defender Mark Connolly.
The 22-year-old Irishman has signed a three-year contract after leaving Sky Bet League 1 side Crawley Town.
Connolly cost Bolton a seven-figure sum when they took him from Wolverhampton Wanderers as a 17-year-old but he failed to make the first-team breakthrough and his senior debut came during a loan spell with St Johnstone in 2010, for whom he only played 45 minutes.
The defender, who has seven caps for Republic of Ireland U21s, left Bolton for Crawley in 2012 and was a regular for two seasons.
He is Allan Johnston's fourth summer signing after Jamie Hamill, Paul Cairney and Lee Miller.
Crawley, meanwhile, have signed Wales U21 international Gwion Edwards from Swansea, for an undisclosed fee.
