Waterford FC is delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder Shane Duggan.
Duggan spent the last number of seasons with Limerick where he captained the side and won promotion to the Premier Division; also scoring a stunning winner when the sides met in the Markets Field last season.
The experienced 29-year-old previously played for Cork City and UCD after a spell cross channel with Plymouth Argyle.
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie after signing, Duggan said: “I’m delighted to get the deal done. I’ve been talking to Alan (Reynolds) for a while now and it’s great to get sorted.
“It’s a massive club and a challenge I’m really looking forward to. I obviously played against Waterford last year and it’s great to be part of that now to hopefully help the club build on last season.
“I saw the quality there last season, I played with Bastien when he was at Limerick, and the team really took the league by storm with the football and the formation.
“Of course there’ll always be changes in the team from year to year so I need to hit the ground running in the pre-season and I can’t wait to get started.”
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie after confirming the signing, manager Alan Reynolds said: “It’s great to have Shane signed up for the new season. I’ve been trying to nail him down for some time now and it’s brilliant to get it done.
“He’s a strong and powerful player and he was an almost-ever present for Limerick last season. He did well in the games against us and we’re delighted to get it sorted nice and early with Shane.”
Shane joins Bastien Hery, JJ Lunney, Zack Elbouzedi and Ismahil Akinade in the confirmed Waterford FC 2019 squad to date – with more names to be confirmed in the coming days.
