Ireland International and Bailieborough man Cillian Sheridan has signed for Wellington Phoenix in New Zealand after leaving Polish side Jagiellonia Białystok.
The Phoenix play in the Hyundai A League in New Zealand.
Manager Mark Rudan is delighted to have signed the former Cavan county u21 player,
“I’m constantly looking to challenge my players.
“Competition for places is crucial and at this time of the season, it’s important to strengthen the squad and add quality, said Rudan.
Sheridan has plenty of experience abroad and the offer to play in another foreign country proved too good to pass up.
‘‘To play in another country with different challenges is always appealing to me.
‘‘I have followed the Hyundai A-League and Wellington Phoenix are playing an attractive style and for a footballer you want to enjoy your football and what Mark Rudan is doing, really sold it to me.’’
Sheridan could be in line to face Adelaide United this Saturday 5th January.
