Waterford FC is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Tadhg Ryan ahead of the 2020 season.
Tadhg joins the club having spent last season with Cork City. The 22-year-old shot-stopper has also spent time across the water in England where he played with Huddersfield Town and Radcliffe.
Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie the Limerick native said he was delighted to be joining the Blues for the 2020 season.
“I’m delighted to have signed with the club for the coming season. I really want to get started now and kick on and hopefully give the fans something to shout about for the season.
“Speaking with the manager (Alan Reynolds), I can see his ambitions for the club. I’m a very ambitious person, so I can see the two of us getting along very well. It just seems that everything here is right for me.
“As a keeper, there’s a special relationship between you and the goalkeeping coach. You look at Waterford and I’m going to be training under Dirk Heinen. I cannot wait for that. I know for sure he’ll be able to help me improve my game, and help to bring me to the next level.
“Aside from the staff and facilities, the fans here are fantastic. I’m really going to be looking to impress them when I pull the shirt on. The RSC can be a tricky place to go as an away team, so I’m looking forward to having that behind me this year, and from what I saw of the Blues fans last year, they can be just as loud away from home.”
Also speaking to WaterfordFC.ie, manager Alan Reynolds said;
“I’m delighted to get everything with Tadhg sorted so quickly. He’s a really good keeper and he’s eager to get started. He’s come in and already he has the right attitude, and that’s what we want at the club.
“We sat down and I set out my plans and ambitions for the club for the season. His ambitions match mine. So from the offset, we’re singing from the same hymn sheet.
“We’re all looking forward to the start of preseason now, and hopefully I’ll have a few more signings to announce over the next few days.
