Oscar Brennan set to leave Shelbourne

Sun, Dec 27 2020

2019 First Division league title winner Oscar Brennan is set to leave Shelbourne, following a two-year association with the club.

Brennan signed a two-year contract following Shels’ promotion to the top-flight in 2019, but he is not expected to return to the Reds next season.

The ex-Bohemians star has been told that he is allowed find a new club ahead of the 2021 campaign after Shels were relegated in the play-off final.

Brennan is set to become the fifth player to leave the Reds following their relegation in 2020, along with Daniel O’Reilly, Gary Deegan, Aidan Friel and Colin McCabe.

The Leopardstown native played a pivotal role for Shels during the last two campaigns, famously scoring away to Drogheda United in 2019 as the Reds won promotion back to the top-flight.

Brennan fired home from just over thirty yards out to give Shels a 2-1 lead at the time. They would later win the game 3-1 thanks to a late goal from Lorcan Fitzgerald.

The 24-year-old would then make ten appearances in total for Ian Morris’ charges during the truncated 2020 campaign in the Premier Division.

However, he was unable to help the Tolka Park outfit avoid relegation back to the second tier – as they lost in the play-off final against Longford Town.
