Gavin Boyne Signs From Athlone Town

Manager Kevin Doherty doesn’t let the grass grow under his feet – and today announced the signing of his first new player for the 2016 season.

Having announced, yesterday, the nine players from last season’s squad plus the three from the U19s that have signed for the coming season, Kevin announced the signing of midfielder Gavin Boyne from Athlone Town.

Twenty year old Gavin signed for the midland club from Shamrock Rovers at the start of the 2015 season, having played with the ‘Hoops’ First Division side in the 2014. He had joined the Tallaght based team having spent the previous two seasons with St. Patrick’s Athletic Under 19s.

In the 2015 season, Gavin featured in 24 of Athlone’s league fixtures – starting on 21 occasions and coming on from the bench three times. He scored three league goals – all at home – against Finn Harps in October, against Wexford Youths in July and against Waterford United in April.

We will announce further signing as they happen.
