Four New Signings Added!

Ahead of the return of the SSE Airtricity League First Division, Andy Myler has added four new additions to his squad, completing the signings of Sam Todd, Sean Brennan, Donal Higgins and Adam Lennon.UCD - New Signings 2021

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's return to pre-season action in our friendly against Longford Town, Andy was delighted with his new additions.

"We're delighted to welcome Sam, Sean, Donal and Adam to the group. They add real quality to the squad and increase the competition for places. They've all already displayed their individual strengths in the League of Ireland and we are looking forward to working with them over the next few seasons."

Having joined Finn Harps in 2018 initially on loan, Sam Todd became an ever present in Ollie Horgan's side over the next three seasons. Joining on scholarship he will add a wealth of experience at the heart of our defence as Andy Myler's side go in search of promotion back to the Premier Division.

Irish underage international, and highly rated midfielder Sean Brennan joins the club from Southampton, having spent last season on loan at Shamrock Rovers II.

Donal Higgins joins from Galway United on scholarship and the 19 year old comes with a growing reputation. Having broken through to the Galway first team at the end of the 2018 season, a number of brilliant performances in his first full season in 2019 saw him called up to the Irish Schools and Ireland U18 and U19 sides where he made his debut against Denmark.

Adam Lennon is another scholarship addition as we continue our investment in youth. After progressing through the Athlone Town ranks, Adam quickly established himself as a vital part of their first team squad last season, playing a key role in their progression to the FAI Cup semi final last season.

You can watch the new additions in action tomorrow, with Longford Town streaming the game live on their Facebook page at 12pm!
