Holland becomes final professional player to leave Limerick FC

Long standing Limerick FC underage and senior goalkeeper Tommy Holland has left the club and becomes the final professional player to leave. As a result, Limerick FC now have a fully amateur squad for the first time in many years.

Holland has been at the club since the age of 15 and played for the under-19 squad for four years as well as often making appearances on the substitutes bench at a young age.

At the beginning of last season, Holland left the club to join junior outfit Carew Park but returned when goalkeepers Brendan Clarke and Freddy Hall left the club.

The agile ‘keeper impressed upon his return despite featuring in a struggling team, making vital penalty saves in the process.

However, the season ended in disappointing fashion with Holland falling injured in the first leg of a promotion/relegation play-off against Finn Harps and was unable to play the second leg when the club were relegated.

At the beginning of this season, manager Tommy Barrett admitted that least season’s form counted for little and competition between Holland and Jack Brady would be fierce.

Brady got the nod and hasn’t lost his place since, putting in a string of fine performances. With the lack of game time coupled with financial problems at the club, Holland has decided to depart after a relatively long association.

It now leaves the club with just two goalkeepers on the books; Jack Brady and youth goalkeeper Callan Scully.

Elsewhere, Limerick have confirmed that Sean Madigan and Alan Murphy have rejoined the club, while the departures of Killian Brouder, Will Fitzgerald, Connor Ellis and Colm Walsh-O’Loghlen have been confirmed.
