Shelbourne Football Club is this evening delighted to announce that Conor Kearns has signed a new contract.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper has become a key player since joining the Reds from Galway United where he’d spent the last two seasons.
Kearns’ new deal will keep him at Tolka Park until the end of 2024 at the earliest. A gifted shotstopper, the Dublin native has made 20 appearances for Damien Duff’s side this season.
Kearns has kept 9 clean sheets, and conceded the fewest number of goals in the League of Ireland Premier Division, just 14 goals in 20 games.
Conor Kearns said: “I couldn’t be happier to extend my time at Shelbourne Football Club. It’s a really exciting place to be at the moment, on and off the pitch and I’ve loved every minute since stepping through the door here at Tolka Park.
There’s huge ambitions here from the manager and the staff, the players, and everyone behind the scenes, I really want to be a part of that. Things are moving in the right direction at Shels and I hope I can play a role in helping the club continue that forward progression.”
Damien Duff, Head Coach, Shelbourne FC said: “We are all delighted that Conor has extended his stay with the club. He has been an incredible signing and has quickly shown that he is the best goalkeeper in the League Of Ireland. What is even more exciting is that he is a top pro who has an elite mentality and he will no doubt improve a lot more with the help of Paul Skinner and with the environment he is working in, I would like to thank the owner Acun Ilıcalı and Tan Kesler for completing the deal so quickly.”
