Shamrock Rovers have made a big statement with the signings of Gary O’Neill & Neil Farrugia from UCD.
Farrugia has been linked with many sides in the UK while O’Neill has the highest pass completion rate in the league at 90%.
Speaking to the Rovers website, Stephen Bradley said,
“We’ve been speaking to Gary for quite some time and we’re delighted to get him in. He fits how we play, he’s a good age and he has some really good attributes. We believe that we can improve him and we’re looking forward to seeing him playing for the club.
I said from day one that we have goals from all over the pitch in this team and Neil and Gary will just add to that. They’ve shown that they can create and score goals and I’m sure they’ll bring that to us.
Both of them, once we sat down with them and gave them our plan of where we see them here, they were very keen to get it done. It was great that both were very interested and wanted to get it done quickly and thankfully we did.
Neil is very athletic, quick and direct. He’s different to what we have currently in the squad and a player we’ve liked for quite some time. We’ve known about other interest in him but we’re delighted that he sees his football at Shamrock Rovers. He’s only young, he’s done well so far and there’s still so much more to come from him. Hopefully we can see that here at this club.”
