Dayle Rooney and Sean Quinn extend contracts at Tolka Park while Daniel McKenna departs

Mon, Sep 07 2020

Premier Division Shelbourne have confirmed the contract renewals of midfield duo Dayle Rooney and Sean Quinn.

The young midfield duo will remain at Tolka Park until the end of the 2021 campaign under their current deals.

Meanwhile, the Reds have also confirmed the departure of fellow midfielder Daniel McKenna.

McKenna was part of the Shelbourne side that won promotion from the First Division during the 2019 campaign.

“I am delighted Dayle and Sean have committed for the 2021 season,” Morris told his club’s media team. “You can see the maturity already in both of them on and off the pitch.

“They are young players that are constantly wanting to get better. I still believe there is more to come from Dayle and Sean.”

Rooney was promoted to the Reds first-team ahead of the 2017 season under previous boss Owen Heary after impressing with the club’s under-19s in 2015 and 2016.

Quinn joined Shelbourne ahead of the 2019 season from UCD, and he was also part of the Shelbourne side that won promotion to the top-flight last year.

McKenna – once of the Wolverhampton Wanderers academy – leaves the Drumcondra club after making 17 league appearances for the club.
