Galway United has retained yet another key player, as striker Wilson Waweru has resigned with the club for the coming season.

The 21 year old has been playing with United for four years now, first joining the Tribesmen in 2017, after having previously played with Mervue.

Speaking with the club’s media team over the weekend, Waweru said “I’m delighted to sign for Galway United. It feels great, and being here for four years now, hopefully, we do well again this year.”

“I’m trying to improve every year, and last year I got three goals, scored a few more as well, eight goals, so next year hopefully try and get a few more and improve myself as a player, and hopefully it will go well for me.”

John Caulfield is building an impressive line of strikers for United’s next run at climbing back to the Premiere Division, with Jordan Adeyemo signing on just before Christmas.

Wilson Waweru has a strong scoring record with Galway, claiming nine goals in his first season with the underage side.

This year he scored a further eight goals, and earned fans’ appreciation while doing so.

“It was great walking off that pitch with all the supporters cheering us on. The fans chanting our names gives us the drive to push on and to try and win games.”
