Scott van der Sluis signs new Shels deal

Shelbourne Football Club is delighted to announce the re-signing of goalkeeper Scott van der Sluis for the 2023 season. 

Scott joined the club during the summer transfer window of the 2022 season having previously played with Bangor City in Wales. 

A talented keeper, he has represented his country at underage level from U15 to U17. He has had spells at Liverpool, Manchester United and Swansea City before moving to Merthyr Town prior to his move to Dublin.  

He made one appearance for the Reds in the 2022 season, starting the FAI Cup Round of 16 clash away to Bonagee United where he kept a clean sheet in a comfortable 4-0 victory.  

The Welsh shot stopper joins a large contingent of the 2022 squad to sign up for another season at the club with JR Wilson, Mark Coyle, Luke Byrne, Shane Farrell, Shane Griffin, Jack Moylan, Gavin Molloy, Jad Hakiki, Brian McManus, JJ Lunney, Kameron Ledwidge, Conor Kane and Sean Boyd putting pen to paper for the 2023 season. Shels have also signed Tyreke Wilson, Evan Caffrey, Andrew Quinn, Conor Kearns and Kyle Robinson for the upcoming season.

Damien Duff, Shelbourne FC Head Coach said: “It is great news that Scott has decided to re-sign for 2023.

Although he received limited game time, he settled in brilliantly halfway through the season and trained brilliantly. Still young and very ambitious, he will make it a very competitive position in the squad.”

Scott van der Sluis said: “When I had a call from the gaffer it was a no brainer really. I only got half of last season with them but the lads, staff, fans and people around the club have been brilliant with me since coming in. 

This is a great club going in the right direction and hopefully next year I can show everyone a bit more of what I’m about.”
