Stockport County has signed 18-year-old goalkeeper Andrew Wogan for a club record fee.

The 18-year-old shot-stopper returns on loan to Drogheda United for the remainder of the 2024 campaign.

Wogan burst onto the scene last summer, making his debut in a 3-2 defeat to Shelbourne at Tolka Park, despite a great performance from the Ardee man.

His form continued for the rest of the year, helping the Boynesiders survive relegation once again and earning him the club’s Young Player of the Season award.

Wogan’s talent earned him a call-up to the Ireland U19 team as the starting goalkeeper in the last seven matches, conceding only four goals in those games.

On the move to England, Drogs manager Kevin Doherty said, “Andy is an exciting young goalkeeper with a really bright future ahead of him. His temperament is so good, and he’s been excellent for us.

“As a club, we take pride in giving young players a chance, and it highlights the really good work being done at our academy,” Doherty explained.

“It was very important to us that Andy was coming back on loan, and I’m delighted we could agree to that as we prepare for the remainder of the season.”

Wogan will become Drogheda United’s biggest departure since Emmanuel Adegboyega left for Norwich last summer.
