Dan Casey moves Stateside to join Sacramento Republic from Bohemians

Wed, Jan 13 2021

United Soccer League (USL) side Sacramento Republic have unveiled the signing of Bohemians defender Daniel Casey.

The former Sunderland academy graduate joins the club pending international clearance.

While at Bohemians, Casey made over 80 appearances for the club – with his debut for Keith Long’s charges coming in 2017.

During the truncated 2020 campaign, Casey played 15 league games for Keith Long’s charges who secured a second placed league finish.

“Dan’s addition brings physicality, aggressiveness, and a strong pedigree to our defensive core,” Sacramento Republic General Manager Todd Dunivant said.

“His intensity and grit fit in very well to our team mentality, and he is the type of defender that opposing attackers do not like facing.”

Speaking on social media after the move was confirmed, Casey added: “Over the moon to sign for Sacramento Republic, can’t wait to get started.

“Want to thank everyone at Bohemians. And I wish them all the best for the upcoming season.”
