Waterford FC is delighted to announce the signing of William Fitzgerald.
The much-sought-after winger joins to add another attacking threat to the Blues squad and will wear the #19 jersey.
The 20-year-old last played with Limerick; playing with their underage teams before lining out for the first team. Highly-regarded, Fitzgerald has been capped at Republic of Ireland U21 level.
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie after signing, Fitzgerald said:
“I’m really happy to get everything sorted. It’s a great club and it’s clear over the past few seasons that there is a lot of good working going on to push it in the right direction. And I want to play my part in that.
“I met Rennie [Alan Reynolds], had a look around the facilities and I wanted to come here. It’s a professional setup and the facilities are top class; training pitches, playing pitch, the gym, everything is here for the players.
“I’ve worked with Joe Gamble, Shane Duggan and Bastien Hery at Limerick so it’ll be great to link up with them again now. It was tough to leave Limerick, and I want to thank them for everything over the past years for what I’ve learned.
“I wanted to be back giving the Premier Division a shot and I’m delighted with the decision to come to Waterford FC.”
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie after confirming the signing of William Fitzgerald, manager Alan Reynolds said:
“I’m delighted to get Will signed up and I know he’ll be an excellent addition to the squad. We’ve been looking for attacking players and he’s the kind who I think can excite the fans.
“He likes to get forward and get at players which is what we’ve been after. He knows some of the lads from playing in Limerick so he’ll fit right into what we’re trying to do here.”
