Galway United re-sign Francely Lomboto

Wed, Dec 02 2020

Galway United youngster Francely Lomboto has re-signed for the Tribesmen for the forthcoming League of Ireland season.

The 20-year-old attacker joined up with the United first team last season after impressing for the club’s under 19 academy team. Lomboto scored on his second senior appearance for the Tribesmen against Athlone Town last season. The talented forward offers pace and power in the final third that has clearly caught the eye of manager John Caulfield.

Lomboto expressed his delight in re-signing for Galway United ahead of the 2021 season.

“When John came in, he made a big difference. The way he trained us individually, he made time for everybody, I felt I improved as a player and as a professional under him. I’m really excited for next season, I’m hoping for bigger things, and promotion is the goal,” Lomboto told the club’s website.

“The step up from underage football was big, you have to be stronger, the training is more intense and you have to expect more from yourself and your teammates.

“I’m looking forward to building on last season, hopefully with going full time, that will help me improve in certain areas. I want to help push the club to promotion and I can’t wait for the new season now.”

Galway United manager John Caulfield sees the potential Lomboto possesses. 

“Francely has tremendous pace and power,” Caulfield told the club’s website. 

“He was involved in a number of first team games last season and impressed. He’s another player that we feel can develop his game and improve.

“We see huge potential in him, hopefully with stronger players around him next season, he’ll continue to improve and be more of a regular in the first team. He’s an exciting player.”
