Limerick FC place experienced trio on transfer list

Limerick FC have confirmed that Paul O’Connor, Robbie Williams and Shaun Kelly have been put on the transfer list by the club.

Confirmation came in the form of a single sentence at the end of a statement by the club, in which they firstly state that Freddy Hall and Tony Whitehead have penned new deals.

“Limerick FC are pleased to confirm that young defender Tony Whitehead and experienced goalkeeper Freddy Hall have signed contract extensions with the club.

Whitehead – who has been with the Shannonsiders since 2012 – has committed his future until the end of the 2018 season, while Hall – who joined midway through the 2015 campaign – will remain until the close of 2019.

Commenting after putting pen to paper, Tony, 21, said: “I was delighted when I found out I was going to be offered a new contract to extend my time at the club. I’ve been here a good few years now and I think the club is heading in the right direction.

“I think this is the right place for me to be to work hard and try to improve. I’m looking forward to continue working with Neil (McDonald), Eddie (Hickey) and the rest of the coaching staff and learning from them. It’s a huge relief to get it sorted this early and now I can just get my head down and concentrate on my future at Limerick.”

Hall, 32, said: “I am glad to have extended my contract. I am pretty settled and comfortable here in Limerick and look forward to the seasons to come.”

Midfielder Paul O’Conor and defenders Robbie Williams and Shaun Kelly have been made available for transfer.”

O’Conor voiced his displeasure on Twitter yesterday evening but no further statements have been made yet by the club or the players in question.

Williams, Kelly and O’Conor played a major role in last season’s first division title winning season, if they are to leave the club they will be following Chris Muhall and Ian Turner who have already departed.

It is becoming clear that manager Neil McDonald is looking to make major changes to the squad and is hoping to bring in a few more new signings to replace those who will be leaving, however, it will no doubt be difficult to replace three players who have so much League of Ireland experience.
