Stephen Walsh returns for seventh season with Galway United

Stephen Walsh will be returning for his seventh season at Eamon Deacy Park after re-signing with Galway United.

Since coming over from the Galway Hibernians in 2010, the 28 year old has appeared for Galway United 175 times.

In those six seasons with the club, the centre back has scored eight goals.

Walsh was the 12th signing secured by United boss Alan Murphy ahead of the 2019 season.

“It’s a relief and statement to get Stephen signed back for next season. He’s prepared to put his shoulder to the wheel and lead by example both on and off the pitch,” Murphy said.

“At 28, he’s now a senior pro in the squad and knows his role. He’s a week-in, week out, solid performer that knows the club.”

“What is very identifiable is his passion and how he really wants to play League of Ireland for Galway United.

“He’s Galway through and through, and he’s going to be a real leader for us, but also, he’s a real talent.

“Stephen has a cultured left foot and there is nobody that wants to win headers or battles more,” Murphy enthused.

“So he really brings a lot of talent and commitment to the table and I’m delighted to have him back for next season.”
