Killian Brennan chooses Rovers over Pat's

The experienced midfielder returns to Tallaght where he will be reunited with Pat Fenlon.

FORMER LEAGUE OF Ireland player of the year Killian Brennan has left St Pat’s after agreeing to join Shamrock Rovers for the coming season.

Brennan re-joins Rovers after three years in Inchicore, where he won the player of year award in 2013, having made 24 appearances for the Hoops in 2012.

Rovers manager Fenlon was delighted to finalise the deal with a player who has vast experience at this level.

“I am delighted to get Killian, he is one of the best players in the league over the past few seasons,” Fenlon said.

“We fought off stiff competition from St Pat’s to get his signature and I am delighted we have been able to secure it.

“Killian has probably played more games for me than he has with any other manager, I know his game, I know what he can do for Shamrock Rovers and he knows what I expect from him.

“He also brings experience to our squad that will enable our younger players to learn from him.

“Killian can change games and be a match-winner on any given day; we look forward to working with him at Rovers in the new season”.

The club has also confirmed that defender Maxime Blanchard has agreed terms for 2016 and has re-signed.

Shamrock Rovers’ 2016 squad now includes: Barry Murphy, Craig Hyland, Simon Madden, David Webster, David O’Connor, Luke Byrne, Rob Cornwall, Sean Heaney, Trevor Clarke, Gavin Brennan, Gary McCabe, Patrick Cregg, Brandon Miele, Killian Brennan, Danny North, Mikey Drennan, Gary Shaw and Dean Clarke.
