Waterford complete Brennan signing


Waterford FC have signed former Shelbourne midfielder Oscar Brennan.

The 24-year-old former Bohs, Cabinteely and Shelbourne player, is the latest player to put pen to paper with the club following the arrival of new manager Kevin Sheedy in December.

Brennan spent the last two seasons at Shels but, after helping them win promotion to the Premier Division in 2019, was keen to move on after they went straight back down last year.

“As soon as I knew there was a bit of interest, I was keen to come down,” Brennan said.

“It didn’t take long to sort something out. I’m really hoping to help the team in any way I can and help the side push on from last season.

“We’ve had a long break during the off-season but I’ve looked after myself over Christmas, doing my own little bits at home and doing my own runs and stuff like that.

“It’s my first experience playing full-time so, it’s a little bit different training in the mornings, but it’s so enjoyable spending full days training at this pace.”
