Galway United have announced their first signing ahead of the 2021 League of Ireland season.

Headford native Padraic Cunningham returns to the club after making his last appearance for The Tribesmen in October 2017.

The striker has just turned 24 and returns to the League of Ireland after spells with the Galway Senior Football team and Galway and District League side Corrib Celtic.

“Podge is a Galway lad with fantastic potential,” manager John Caulfield said, speaking to the club’s media team.

“He’s aggressive and has lots of pace. He’s at the perfect age and has a great attitude. He wanted to get involved and he’s keen to make a big impression next year.

“Most importantly, he wants to play and he knows it’s going to be a big year for him. He was hell bent on coming back to the club, so it was an easy deal for me to conclude.

“Podge needs to fulfil his potential now and turn into a crucial player for Galway United.”

Cunningham spent four seasons with Galway United after joining initially in 2014. He scored 16 goals during his first stint.

The club has also confirmed the departure of six players including Vinny Faherty who announced his retirement earlier this week.

Also leaving The Tribesmen are Jack Lynch, Josh Smith, Timo Parthoens, Joe Collins and Conor Barry.
