Drogheda United are delighted to announce that Paul Skinner, Kevin Farragher, Luke Gallagher and Mark Doyle have all re-signed ahead of the 2019 season.
Goalkeeper Skinner, who is in his second spell at the club, rejoined Drogheda from Longford Town last season and was an ever present in the league having made 33 appearances in all competitions, keeping 10 clean sheets.
A regular in front of Skinner was centre-back Farragher with the 25-year-old making 32 appearances in 2018 before re-signing for his fourth season at the club.
Equally adept in defence and midfield, Gallagher will bring versatility to the Drogheda squad as he was an important member of last season’s side, scoring four times in 31 appearances.
Having graduated through the underage teams, Drogheda fans will be delighted to see Doyle commit his future to the club with the winger a catalyst for Drogheda’s play-off finish as he netted nine goals in all competitions.
Today’s signings brings Tim Clancy’s squad for 2019 up to seven with Sean Brennan, Conor Kane and Chris Lyons all agreeing new deals at United Park.
