Football: Freestone moves to Dundalk.

Byline: MICHAEL SCULLY

UEFA Cup hopefuls Dundalk have signed former Middlesbrough striker Chris Freestone ahead of tonight's First Division Cup clash with Sligo at the Showgrounds.

Freestone, 30, played 12 games for Middlesbrough in the mid-90s and has since been around the lower leagues in England.

In his time there he has played for Carlisle, Hartlepool and Shrewsbury Town, to name but a few.

After signing for a month, the attacker will be available for the UEFA Cup trip to Croatia next week - Dundalk meet FC Varteks on next Thursday.

Freestone's arrival coincides with the decision by the Lilywhites to release Stuart Connolly.

Connolly has had numerous injury problems over the past 12 months.

Dundalk have also decided to release their experienced midfielder Liam Dunne.
