Local footballer Timmy Molloy has signed with Galway United to represent his home county after playing for Salthill and UCD.
Before coming to Galway United Molloy spent three years with Salthill Devon’s League of Ireland side, then moved to UCD where he helped then capture the First Division trophy in 2018.
Molloy also featured in two of the Students Premier Division campaigns before returning to Galway to rejoin Salthill Devon’s junior side in 2019.
Between the two of them Molloy has racked up more than 100 League of Ireland appearances, and United manager Alan Murphy says that he will make an important addition at Eamon Deacy Park, bringing a wealth of experience to the Tribesmen.
“Timmy is a past First Division winner and has a large chunk of games played in both the Premier and First Division,” Murphy explained.
“It’s brilliant that we can attract such local talent to the club and we’re delighted to be able to add a player to the huge amount of local players that we already have secured for next season.”
Murphy added that Molloy has a “huge appetite” for playing in the League of Ireland, and that he will be a big leader for United’s players despite his young age.
