Chris Mulhall parts ways with Limerick FC in search of more first team football.
Limerick FC have announced the departure of striker Chris Mulhall. The former UCD man has been at the club since the beginning of the 2016 season having signed from UCD. Mulhall made an immediate impact for Limerick FC and was a vital part of the squad during the 2016 Airtricity League First Division title winning season, finishing joint top scorer with John O’Flynn on 12 goals.
The Birmingham born player signed for the Super Blues as a winger but was quickly converted to a striker. Having been central to the success last season, Mulhall found his first team chances limited during this campaign.
He enjoyed a regular starting place under interim manager Willie Boland. However, since the arrival of Neil McDonald and the subsequent switch in formation, Mulhall has only featured twice in seven league games and leaves Limerick in search of first team football. The striker was very popular among Limerick supporters for his work ethic and commitment during games.
Speaking to the club’s official website about his departure, Mulhall spoke of his sadness upon leaving the club:
“I’d just like to thank the club for the opportunity to play with Limerick FC; I’d like to think I’ve contributed to the healthy position the club is in today.
“I’m very sad to be leaving this great club and leave a lot of good friends behind. Unfortunately, that’s the way football works and I look to find a new football challenge.
Mulhall continued by giving special praise to Limerick chairman Pat O’Sullivan and has wished the club success in the future.
“I’d like to give a special thanks to Pat O’Sullivan who is a good football man who wants the best for not only Limerick FC but Limerick City. Also a special thanks to the fans who took to me. I loved playing for them and thank them for the confidence they gave me. I wish Limerick all the success in the future.
Limerick FC have wished Chris Mulhall all the best for the future.
