Mon, Dec 07 2020

Galway United defender Chris Horgan has re-signed for Galway United for the forthcoming League of Ireland season. This will be Horgan’s fourth season at the Tribesmen after coming through the club’s academy system.

The 21-year-old has made over 40 appearances to date for his hometown club after making his first team debut in 2018. Horgan expressed his delight in signing a contract extension with Galway United.

“I’m dying to get back involved, I can’t wait to return to training, it’s what I love doing. I want to be playing pretty much every week, if not every week, next season," Horgan told the club's website.

He continued: “I got a little bit frustrated last season when I wasn’t playing, but I enjoyed the training sessions and I think I can learn a lot from John in a full season and Colm (Horgan) told me a lot about him, having worked under John at Cork City, so it’s exciting times for both the club and myself.

“Training full time was something I always wanted to do. I can only improve and people who give their all don’t have any regrets.

“The signing’s that John has made have been very good, hopefully I can stake a claim and nail down a position, but the main thing is that the club does well and it gets back to where it needs to be.”

Galway United manager John Caulfield can see the talent that the defender possesses.

“I saw a lot of potential in Chris last season,” Caulfield told the club's website.

He continued: “He comes from a great footballing family. He’s still learning the game, but he has a great attitude and like all of his brothers, he’s incredibly professional. He has a lot of good attributes.

“Chris knows it’s a big season ahead for him. We’re hoping with full time training, we can take him to the next level.

“He’s another one of our younger players that is coming through and we’re hoping that we can develop him even further next season.”
