Shamrock Rovers complete deals for Stephen Rice and Shane Robinson

New Tallaght Stadium boss Trevor Croly signed up two midfielders today.

TREVOR CROLY HASN’T wasted any time getting his house in order.

The Shamrock Rovers boss has added to his recent business with more deals today.

Former Hoops Shane Robinson returns on a one-year deal from FC Haka in Finland while Tallaght Stadium favourite, Stephen Rice re-signs on a single-season contract.

“As far as I was concerned I was never going anywhere else,” Rice said today. “Trevor spoke to me and told me I was part of his plans for next season and I was delighted to sign back up. I can’t wait for the new season to get started, so we can put last year behind us and get back to successful ways.”

Robinson, meanwhile, said it was a privelage to be back with Shamrock Rovers.  “When I left the last time, I would never have seen this happening. I enjoyed my time away but I’m looking forward to being back in the league and to working with Trevor again,” he said.
