Lomboto and O'Dea sign first team contracts with Galway

Fri, Jul 31 2020

Galway United have announced the signing of Under 19 stars Francley Lomboto and Caoilfhionn O’Dea to first team contracts.

The pair had been training with the first team ahead of the re-start of the  League of Ireland season which gets underway this weekend.

Both were part of the Tribesmen’s Under 19 side that reached the final of the competition before losing out to Waterford last October.

They have been at the club since 2017 when then Under 17 manager Alan Murphy signed them up for his squad.

O’Dea has already had a small taste of first team football after being called up last September. The young midfielder made one appearance as a late second half substitute in their win over Limerick that same month.

The Tribesmen restart their season tonight at home to Cabinteely (kick-off 7.45pm).
