John Caulfield says that it was the right decision to delay the start of the 2021 season until March, and that Galway United has adjusted their schedule accordingly.

The start of the First Division season has been pushed back to March 26, and Galway United has delayed its return to training in response.

The club will now commence training for the 2021 season in early February.

“In the meantime, the players have been keeping themselves in good condition and they’re itching to get back on the training ground. We understand the delay, and everyone wants a complete season, without any delays or disruption.

“It looks like the delayed start will push the end of the season into late October, but we’re still waiting for official confirmation on that.

“We’ve been delighted with the recruitment thus far, it’s possible that there will be a couple more additions to the squad in the coming weeks. We’ll keep supporters informed on any new developments.”

Players signed for 2021: Kevin Horgan, Conor O’Keefe, Christopher Horgan, Gary Boylan, Maurice Nugent, Killian Brouder, Mikey Place, Stephen Christopher, Ronan Manning, Caoilfhionn O’Dea, David Hurley, Shane Duggan, Carlton Ubaezuonu, Shane Doherty, Ruairi Keating, Mikie Rowe, Padraic Cunningham, Francely Lomboto, Colin Kelly, Wilson Waweru
