Readmitted to the First Division in 2010, Shane made 23 league appearances for Derry who went on to win the First Division title and he made a further 33 league appearances in 2011 when Derry returned to Premier Division competition.

In 2012 Shane won an FAI Cup winner's medal when Derry beat St Patrick's Ath 3-2 in the final.
