Galway United defender Killian Brouder has signed a new deal with the club that will see him stay at Eamonn Deacy Park for the forthcoming League of Ireland season.

The 22-year-old was a key player in United’s defence last season and played every minute of every game under John Caulfield. 

“John came in and gave the whole team confidence. We knew we had players in the squad with quality, and he gave us the platform to go out and play,” Brouder told the club’s website.

“He knows the league inside out, his attention to detail is second to none and it’s clear to see what he wants to put in place in Galway. John wants the club to be in the Premier Division. It’s up to us now as players to perform and hit the ground running this time.”

The Limerick native continued: “Everybody wants to play in a full time environment. You can learn more about the game because you’re on the training ground more with the coaches and you can develop both physically and technically.

“I enjoyed playing alongside Maurice; we’ve known each other since we were 15, playing underage at Limerick. I felt we had a good balance in our partnership. Maurice is very fit, he can get around well, whereas I like to get on the ball and play passes. We complement each other well and we’ve developed a good understanding together.”

Galway United manager John Caulfield was delighted to secure another signing for Galway United’s squad for the 2021 campaign.

“Killian has been a mainstay since I came in. He’s a good defender, that’s strong in the air, and he’s got a good left foot. We’re hoping he’ll get even quicker and stronger with full time training,” said Caulfield.

“He’s a good young player, who has formed a strong partnership with Maurice Nugent. Killian has a great attitude, he wants the team to really drive on next year, and he should have a big role to play in that.”
