Dean Williams & Darragh Nugent Sign On Loan!
Longford Town FC is delighted to announce the loan signing of Dean Williams & Darragh Nugent from Shamrock Rovers for the remainder of the season.
21 Year old Williams and 20 Year old Nugent were both on the bench for Shamrock Rovers last night in their Champions League Qualifier in Bratislava but will be available for selection for De Town's game at home to Drogheda on Saturday night at Bishopsgate.
Williams is a dynamic forward who has spent time at Athlone and Bray on loan where he scored 8 goals in 16 games and 9 goals in 7 games respectively. Considering goals is something De Town is lacking in at the moment, Williams' arrival will certainly add to our attacking options up top. Dean will be wearing the number 10 jersey until for the remainder of the season.
Darragh Nugent is a 6ft tall midfielder who comes highly rated from Shamrock Rovers, having joined from UCD in 2019 and gone on to make appearances for Shamrock Rovers II last season as well as the first team. He was also a member of the U19 Rovers squad that won the Enda McGuill Cup. His availability for selection this Saturday will be a boost, considering Aodh Dervin misses the game due to suspension after picking up 5 yellows.
LTFC Manager Daire Doyle expressed his delight in getting the two lads;
I'm delighted to be able to bring in Dean and Darragh to our club. Both will add to our group and I look forward to them making a real impact with us. Dean offers a goal scoring threat to us and Darragh is a box to box midfielder. Both lads can't wait to get started with us and we look forward to working together over the coming months in our fight to remain in the Premier Division.
