Biography:
New Lodge Road man Martin Donnelly had a remarkable 2008/09 season. His displays from the left-wing brought praise from all quarters and a call-up to the Northern Ireland B squad. He was unable to take-up his position in the squad as the match conflicted with the Irish Cup final where Crusaders defeated Cliftonville. He was rewarded with a full cap as a late substitute in an end-of-season friendly with Italy. Donnelly was transfer-listed by Crusaders manager Stephen Baxter in January 2011 and joined Cliftonville at the end of the season.
