Cobh Ramblers have signed former Waterford and Shamrock Rovers midfielder Nathan West, while goalkeeper Adam Mylod has signed a new deal.

24-year-old West signs after four years out of the League of Ireland in amateur football, while Mylod made his first-team breakthrough at St Colman’s Park last season.

West came through the ranks with schoolboy club St Kevin’s Boys before signing for Waterford United as a teenager, making his senior debut against Salthill Devon in 2011.

Two years later, the Kilkenny native joined Shamrock Rovers but, after just six months, returned to amateur football with Freebooters.

A spell with Wexford Youths followed before he returned to Freebooters in 2014, and he was most recently involved with South Coast Athletic in the Cork AUL.

21-year-old Mylod came through the under-19 ranks at Cork City before joining his brother Ian at the Rams ahead of the 2017 season.

He challenged captain Paul Hunt for his place in 2018 and was rewarded with a starting spot for the EA Sports Cup final as the Rams were narrowly defeated by Derry City at the Brandywell.

That brings to six the number of players signed up for Stephen Henderson’s side ahead of the new campaign, joining Hunt, Kevin Taylor, Ben O’Riordan and Matthew Lambe.
