BREAKING: Connor Ellis leaves Limerick FC

It has emerged this afternoon that striker Connor Ellis has left Limerick FC sources close to the club have confirmed.

It is the worst possible news for manager Tommy Barrett as the former Cork City man was a vital ingredient in the club’s relatively surprising play-off chase this season.

Vital goals against the likes of Cabinteely, Cobh and Athlone have provided the platform for the club to challenge at the higher end of the table.

Limerick FC have had well documented financial troubles for the past 12 months with the situation becoming increasingly dire this season with threats of strike action from the players and treatment of injured player Sean Russell regarding payment of his medical bills.

With Ellis being one of the higher earners and better performers this season, it was always a big possibility that he would leave the club once the chance arose.

Given his form this season, Ellis will leave a big hole in Limerick’s options in the forward department.

The Shannonsiders now only have two recognised strikers in the squad in Kieran Hanlon and Adam Foley.
