Horgan and Doherty sign new contracts for Galway United

Shane Doherty and Kevin Horgan have signed new contracts to keep them at Eamonn Deacy Park in 2021.

Goalkeeper Kevin Horgan returned to Galway United from Shamrock Rovers two years ago, while Shane Doherty rejoined the club midway through the 2020 season.

Speaking to galwayunitedfc.ie, Shane Doherty said that he was over the moon to be back at Galway United.

“It was such a strange season with everything going on, but to be involved so much really made me fall back in love with things,” he said.

“Being a part of the run we went on was really special. There was no question this was where I wanted to be after the momentum we had.

“It was a disappointing end, but it has only left us hungrier for the season ahead.”

Kevin Horgan, who is one of the brightest young goalkeepers in the country, said that he wants to play a big role in Galway United doing well and hopefully getting back to the Premier Division again.

“As well as having made really positive signings and re-signings already, moving to full time football is huge,” he told the club’s website.

“It’s something I wanted to do again, I’m excited to get back involved and it will be a huge help to us next year.”
