Waterford FC are delighted to confirm the signing of Noel Hunt. Waterford-native Hunt joins the club as player/assistant-manager.
Hunt will be no stranger to Blues’ fans having played at the RSC in the early 2000’s before going on to represent the Republic of Ireland senior international side and play in the English Premier League with Reading.
Hunt spent time in Scotland with Dunfermline Athletic and Dundee United before earning a move to Reading where he secured promotion to the Premier League; and went on to make 24 appearances.
Hunt most recently played for Wigan Athletic, earning promotion to the Championship.
“I’m delighted to join the club,” Hunt said. “When you look around at the stadium and the facilities, it’s a much different club than the one I was at 16 years ago. But it’s a club that’s going places and I’m delighted to be part of that going forward.
“For me, and to everybody around here, the club is going in a very positive direction and it’s all credit to the players, staff, fans and everybody involved, and I’m just hoping to come in and add something to it and push it forward.”
Waterford FC General Manager, Jack Power, said: “We are delighted to have Noel Hunt return to Waterford. He is widely experienced, having played in the Premier League as well as representing the Republic of Ireland. He’ll bring both great energy and enthusiasm into Waterford FC. It is truly a major coup for our football club.”
