Fri, Nov 15 2019

First Division Galway United announced that Christopher Horgan has extended his stay at Éamonn Deacy Park ahead of the 2020 campaign.

After an impressive year in the first-team for the Tribesmen, Horgan has extended his stay on Corribside.

Horgan made 28 First Division appearances this term for United, in just his first year of senior League of Ireland football.

“I felt I learned a lot every single week and as a club, we finished the season strongly,” the 20-year-old told his club’s media team.  

“Getting thrown in at the deep end is something I thrive on, it’s what I enjoy doing and it’s what I’m passionate about.

“There was a lot of excitement surrounding some of the young players at the club last season.

“The exposure to first team football will have helped those players hugely going into the new year.

“If we can add a bit of experience to the ranks and continue to bolster the squad, next season could be very exciting.

“Competition is always a good thing in any squad, it lets nobody rest on their laurels and standards remain high.

“It’s a really exciting time and I can’t wait to get back in for pre-season, I just want to get started now.”

Galway manager Alan Murphy added; “Chris had his first full season with the club after making the breakthrough in 2018. He played a considerable amount of games for such a young player.

“In last season’s development year, he really learned some valuable lessons and got a great insight into what it takes to become a League of Ireland player.

“He’s really determined, he’s an excellent professional that carries himself well and it’s the Horgan trait, they’re such good guys and good people to deal with.

“Chris is a real team player, who is very diligent and wants to learn all the time. He’s a really good player to bring forward to the squad for next season.”
