Ex Chelsea midfielder Conor Clifford puts pen to paper for Limerick FC following ban

Limerick FC have announced that Conor Clifford has penned a deal with the club this Tuesday.

The 26 year old was playing with Dundalk having previously spent his career in England where he started with Chelsea.

Clifford has recently completed a six-month worldwide ban from football for “betting offences.”

The offences were committed in the UK and investigated by the Football Association there.

The FA then charged Clifford with 112 breaches of the FA’s E8 rule. After admitting to the charge Clifford was handed a worldwide football ban spanning six months.

Speaking on the club’s official website manager Tommy Barrett said: “We are delighted to have Conor on board. He is a good signing. We have a light squad and when a player of Conor’s ability becomes available it is great to be able to have him. Hopefully he can kick-start his career again from here.

“He is a good midfielder. He is technically very good and energetic, and we believe he can chip in with some goals as well. We’re looking forward to working with him. He will come into contention straight away.”
