Away days! Bohemians and Limerick gear up for new campaign with release of new kits

New season, new kits for two Premier Division mainstays.

WITH LESS THAN nine weeks until the 2018 SSE Airtricity League campaign kicks into gear, clubs are continuing to put their plans together with new players and new strips.

Both Limerick and Bohemians enjoyed successful seasons on either side of the country in 2017, as Keith Long’s side finished one place away from a European spot while the Blues comfortably secured their safety alongside an FAI Cup semi-final appearance.

Each club has followed a litany of signings over the course of the last month by releasing their new away jerseys for next season — Bohemians opting for a new white strip while Limerick chose an all-green outfit.

Bohemians continue their association with Hummel, however alongside a new sponsor, Limerick have signed a four-year kit deal with Umbro.

Both clubs will be looking to build on successful campaigns in 2017 which saw each comfortably remain in the division as three sides faced automatic relegation to the First Division last year.

Facing into a new 10-team Premier Division Bohemians have already secured the services of Kevin Devaney and JJ Lunney, along with 18 re-signings.

While Limerick have announced the arrival of Cian Coleman, Danny Morrissey and Daniel Kearns alongside 8 re-signings from last season under the management of ex-Blackpool boss Neil McDonald at the Markets Field.
