Lockdown endorses McGinn’s desire to play as long as he can

McGinn, who turns 33 next month, recently returned to training with the Dons in preparation for next season.

The Donaghmore man, who produced a short video to assist with the promotion of his former club Dungannon Swifts’ new kit which carries the NHS logo in recognition of the invaluable role played by healthcare staff during the coronavirus pandemic, has become a firm favourite since returning to Pittodrie following a brief spell playing in South Korea.
