EDDIE NOLAN IS one of four new arrivals at Waterford as the SSE Airtricity League outfit aims to strengthen for the remainder of Premier Division campaign.

Nolan links up with his hometown club at the tail-end of a career which has seen him play over 350 games in the UK while representing clubs such as Preston North End, Scunthorpe United and Crewe Alexandra.

The 32-year-old defender joins fellow newcomers Junior Quitirna, Jeremie Milambo and Anthony Wordsworth in the Blues’ squad for this evening’s meeting with Finn Harps.

Nolan, Quitirna and Wordsworth have all been named in Marc Bircham’s starting line-up, with Milambo included among the substitutes.

Nolan, who began his professional career at Blackburn Rovers, won three senior international caps in friendlies under Giovanni Trapattoni in 2009, having previously captained the Republic of Ireland at U21 level.

A left-footed midfielder from Guinea-Bissau, 21-year-old Quitirna joins Waterford after spending two years in Charlton Athletic’s U23 set-up.
