Dundalk FC are delighted to announce that Chris Shields and Brian Gartland have agreed to extend their stay at the club.
Shields recently clocked up his 210thappearance at the club and now enters his seventh year at Oriel Park. He joined the club from Bray Wanderers in January 2012 and has been a regular in the starting XI winning all domestic honours in his six years at the club including captaining the side to the EA SPORTS CUP just over a month ago. He also played a prominent role in the historic European run last year.
Also re-signing is Brian Gartland who extends his stay after spending the last four and a half years with the Lilywhites. The vice-captain renews his deal and will now embark on his fifth full year at the club at the heart of the defence after signing from Portadown in the summer of 2013. Like Shields he has also sweeped all domestic honours and featured in our European run in 2016.
Both have agreed terms with the club on two-year contracts which will bring them up until the end of the 2019 season.
