Dylan McGlade Re-Signs
Dylan McGlade is an attacking midfielder who started playing football with Swords Rovers before moving to Malahide United. He also had a season with Home Farm before joining Shelbourne’s Under 13 team. He played his football with the Reds until being scouted – and signing – for Middlesbrough in 2011, as a 16 year old.
Dylan spent two seasons at Boro, picking up two major injuries in that time, which curtailed his playing time, before being released in June 2013. Dylan returned home and pondered on his future before deciding to return to Shelbourne and sign for Martin Murray’s Under 19 side, making his debut for them against Athlone Town on October 19th. He played in two further league games in 2013, before picking up a bad injury in a cup game against Fanad United in mid-November, which kept him out of action for some months.
However, he recovered well and joined Johnny Mac’s squad early in the 2014 season. Not having had a pre-season, Dylan found it hard to break into a fairly successful team, and so his appearances during the season were limited.
Dylan is the holder of multiple International caps at underage level.
