Galway Daily soccer Galway United announce two new signings

Galway United has announced two exciting new signings this weekend, with the addition of defender Oisin O’Reilly, and the versatile Edward McCarthy.

O’Reilly is a high-intensity centre-back, who is coming to Eamonn Deacy Park from Athlone Town.

He is the latest of a number of highly impressive defenders who have been on trial for the Tribesmen during the pre-season period.

Speaking to the club media team, he said that he’s “very excited” to get the season going at such a big club, and is aiming to see United make the Premiere Division.

“As a club, we definitely should be aiming for promotion, it’s a tough league this year but with the lads that we have in that changing room, we should be pushing for promotion.”

“For myself, I just want to get settled, get games under my belt, and hopefully have a good place in the team. I play a lot of positions; I wear my heart on my sleeve and have a lot of energy.”

Edward McCarty is a highly adaptable player, who has played as a midfielder, winger and full-back for Treaty United, where he made 21 appearances.

The 20 year old comes to Galway United following a short spell at Limerick junior side Regional United.

Following an impressive trial with United in pre-season, McCarthy was delighted to sign for John Caulfield’s side.

“I am looking forward to the start of the season, it was ideal for me to join the full-time setup. I will enjoy the step up to League of Ireland again and hopefully we can do well”

“I will work hard and give 110% every game, hopefully we can get the reward of promotion at the end of the season.”
