Drogheda United are delighted to announce the signing of Republic of Ireland underage international Shane Elworthy from St Patrick’s Athletic.
Elworthy progressed through St Kevin’s Boys ranks as a youth before joining Fulham in 2013. He spent three years with the London club but returned home to Ireland to join the the Saints’ Under 19 side last season.
Capable of playing at full-back or centre-back, the 19-year-old will add depth and versatility to Pete Mahon’s squad for the season ahead.
