December 22, 2023: Shelbourne FC are delighted to announce the signing of Liam Burt on loan from Shamrock Rovers until the end of the 2024 season.
The 24-year-old attacker made 16 appearances for the Hoops last year during an injury interrupted first season at the Tallaght Stadium. Burt scored his only goal of the campaign against Cork City in August, in what was the winner in a 2-1 victory for the Hoops.
The former Scottish underage international began his League of Ireland career at Bohs, signing from Celtic in 2021. He went on to make 62 league appearances for Bohemians, scoring 15 goals during his time at Dalymount.
A clever and agile right sided player, Burt has played on the wing and in attacking midfield. The Glasgow native has been capped at all underage levels for Scotland from U16 up to U21s.
Burt becomes the 21st member of Damien Duff’s squad for next season. Joining the previously announced John Martin, John O’Sullivan, Dean Williams, Lorcan Healy, Conor Kearns, Gavin Molloy, Mark Coyle, JJ Lunney, Jad Hakiki, Evan Caffrey, Brian McManus, Matty Smith, Paddy Barrett, Tyreke Wilson, Kameron Ledwidge, Sean Boyd, Shane Griffin, Shane Farrell, Keith Ward and Sean Gannon.
Damien Duff, Shelbourne FC Head Coach said: “Liam is a special player who has absolute X factor and we are delighted that he has signed. He is very eager to get back to his best and we plan to get him there. He brings another dynamic to our attacking strengths and I’m sure he will excite all the fans when they see him in action.”
Liam Burt said: “Delighted to be signing for Shels, really glad to get it done after a few weeks of talking and hearing the manager’s plans for the club. I’m really looking forward to getting in and meeting the lads now and working hard in pre-season training. I’m getting back fully fit now and injury free and can’t wait to get the season started and help Shelbourne hopefully progress again after the back of a successful season last year. It’s a massive club Shels and I’m excited to get playing in front of the fans, it’s always been a great atmosphere each time I’ve played at Tolka.”
