Eoin Wearen departs Limerick FC for Glenavon

Former Limerick FC midfielder Eoin Wearen signed for Irish Premiership side Glenavon on Monday night on a two and a half year deal. 26 year old Wearen made 21 appearances for Tommy Barrett’s men during the 2018 season, most of which were at centre-back due to a lack of options.


The former Bohemians midfielder’s career has stagnated due to injury in recent times and he will be looking for a fresh start at Mourneview Park. Speaking to Glenavon’s official club website on Monday evening, manager Gary Hamilton was delighted with the signature.

“He can play centre half or centre midfield and he’s good with both feet. He’s a versatile player who’ll be a big presence as well. We’re delighted to get Eoin in and the fact he can play in two positions is a good thing too.” 

Also speaking to http://www.glenavonfc.com/, Wearen was equally as pleased to complete the deal which he states came about quickly following an approach last week.

“I’m delighted to get the deal done. I found out last week that there was some interest and I’m happy get all signed up now and I’m looking forward to getting going. I’m equally comfortable in both positions and wherever I’m needed I’m happy to play.”

Despite stating his familiarity with both centre-back and central midfield, the Dubliner struggled in midfield for the Super Blues last year and appeared to be more suited to a defensive role, albeit in a struggling side. Wearen is awaiting international clearance to see if he will be available for Saturday’s cup game against Dungannon Swifts.
