Waterford FC is delighted to announce that Rory Feely has re-signed for the 2019 season.
Feely, the 2018 Young Player of the Year, joined the club at the beginning of the 2018 season from St Patrick Athletic and became an important player for Alan Reynolds’ side.
The versatile former Tramore AFC player played in defence, midfielder and attack in his first season with the club; making 30 appearances in 2018.
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie after re-singing, Feely said: I’m absolutely delighted to re-sign for next season. I’ve been speaking to Rennie and I had to sort a few college things but I’m delighted to get it done and sorted.
“Last season was a really successful season for us and it was nothing more than we deserved I think. We had a fantastic dressing room last season and morale was brilliant to be around. The fans drove us on and it was a thoroughly enjoyable season overall.
“I’m really looking forward to getting going and meeting up with all the players again – it’s a top pro setup and with the facilities there, it was always my first choice to re-sign. Rennie was so good to me last season with college and working around that, so it was an easy decision to stay.”
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie after securing the re-signing, manager Alan Reynolds said:
“It’s great to get Rory signed for next season. He played a big role last season and he’s an excellent, young player.
“He played in a number of different positions and really complimented the style we played. He brings a lot of energy to the side and we’re delighted he’s re-signed for the season.”
Rory joins Cory Galvin, Shane Duggan, Bastien Hery, JJ Lunney, Zack Elbouzedi and Ismahil Akinade in the confirmed Waterford FC 2019 squad. More names will be confirmed in the coming days.
