Thu, Feb 18 2021

First Division promotion hopefuls Shelbourne have unveiled the signing of former UCD and Waterford defender Maxim Kouogun ahead of the 2021 season.

The 23-year-old spent four years with UCD and played in their famous Europa League run of 2015.

He also played for Warrenpoint Town in Northern Ireland, while he has also played for Harrogate Town and Wealdstone in the UK.

“I’m looking forward to enjoying my football this season and have been in touch with Ian for a while now,” Kouogun told his club’s media team.

“I know a few of the lads here already and can’t wait to get going,” he said. 

Shelbourne manager Ian Morris added: “Maxi is a big powerful defender. I met him a couple of times last year to try to get him in before he went to England. 

“He will bring competition and balance to our options at the back. I’m delighted to finally have him in.”
