Waterford United have today confirmed the signing of midfielder Daryl Kavanagh. The 23 year old joins having been released by Limerick earlier this week. The 23 year old returns to the Blues having played in the RSC between 2005 and 2007. Kavanagh signed for Limerick at the beginning of last season and has scored twice this season for Pat Scully’s side.
“Waterford United today completed the signing of midfielder Daryl Kavanagh from Limerick FC, in a deal which will run until the end of the season”, a club statement read.
“The winger / forward returns to the Blues after a three year absence, having last played at the RSC between 2005 and 2007. A season with Carrick United in which he played in the Munster Senior Cup final, and won an FAI Junior Cup medal, was followed by a year with Stephen Henderson’s Cobh Ramblers in 2008, before signing with Limerick at the start of the 2009 season.
Kavanagh was released by the Shannonside club this week, and was quickly signed by Henderson, who was impressed with the soon-to-be 24-year-old during his spell at St Coleman’s Park. The Blues boss was delighted to acquire another local player who he feels can add much to the attacking qualities of the side.
The new signing is expected to make his debut in a friendly that has been hastily arranged for tomorrow at 12.00 noon. The Blues are delighted to be able to help out local clubs whenever they can, and so at the request of Tramore AFC, United will line out against their neighbours at Graun Park in Tramore, the third time the sides will have met this season.”
