Cobh Ramblers have signed Shane Lowth from First Division champions Limerick.
Lowth joined Limerick in 2014 as part of the club’s under 19 squad before graduating to the first team squad. Lowth made a couple of appearances as Limerick were crowned First Division champions in 2016.
Lowth, who can play at right-back or on the right side of midfield has also played for his hometown club Tralee Dynamos.
Stephen Henderson brought Lowth in to train with the Rams in late 2016 and was impressed with what he saw.
“Shane is an exciting young player with a huge amount of promise. He brings a lot of options and versatility into our squad. I watched him a lot when he trained with us and he improved as each session progressed. He has pace and aggression going forward, something that I like to see in a player. Shane is another great addition to the squad.”
The arrival of Lowth brings Stephen Henderson’s squad to 18 players heading into 2017.
Cobh Ramblers squad for 2017: Craig Donnellan, Shane Lowth, Ian Mylod, Paul Hunt, Chris McCarthy, Jason Abbott, Matthew Whelan, Stephen Christopher, Jonathan Creamer, Paul Hunt, Cian Kingston, Eoin McGreevy, Kyle McNamara, James McSweeney, Kevin Mulcahy, Darren Murphy, Scott McCarthy, Dean Swords.
