BOHEMIANS HAVE SECURED the services of two important players beyond this season.

The Gypsies announced today that goalkeeper Shane Supple and defender Robert Cornwall have agreed to sign new deals.

Only champions Cork City and runners-up Dundalk have conceded less goals than Bohs in the Premier Division this term, and the defensive pair played a major part in that achievement as the two players who have made most league appearances — Supple 32 and Cornwall 29.

While former Ipswich Town goalkeeper and Dublin footballer Supple has put pen to paper on a two-year deal, ex-Shamrock Rovers centre-half Cornwall is tied down until the end of 2018.

Keith Long’s side safely avoided relegation and they can still finish as high as fifth in the top flight with a win at home Finn Harps on Friday night coupled with a Cork City victory over Bray Wanderers.
