Bohemians snap up former Ipswich and Dublin GAA goalkeeper Shane Supple
The 29-year-old was understudy to Stephen Cluxton for a couple of seasons.

BOHEMIANS HAVE ANNOUNCED the signing of former Ireland U21 goalkeeper Shane Supple seven years after he quit the game.

The 29-year-old joins the SSE Airtricity League club after resurrecting his football career with Leinster Senior League outfit Crumlin United last season.

Supple returned home from Ipswich in 2009 ‘after falling out of love with the game’ and instead opted to play Gaelic football with St Brigid’s and Dublin.

He established himself as a reliable understudy to Stephen Cluxton during four years on the senior panel but is now set to play in the League of Ireland.

The Dubliner began his professional career at Ipswich with his four year spell across the water also including loan stints with Oldham Athletic and Falkirk.

Supple made 38 first team appearances at Portman Road and won the FA Youth Cup in 2005.

His arrival at Dalymont Park is a shrewd piece of business by manager Keith Long ahead of the second half of the League of Ireland season.
