Drogheda United are delighted to announce the signing of defender Dane Massey from Dundalk.
Massey is the 20th player, and sixth new addition to be announced from Tim Clancy’s 2021 Premier Division squad.
Massey joined Dundalk ahead of the 2013 season from Bray Wanderers, where he had come through the Seagulls youth system before breaking into the first team.
An eight-year spell at Dundalk would see Massey make 291 appearances for Dundalk, scoring 24 goals and winning five league titles, three FAI Cups, three League Cups, two President’s Cups and the 2019 Unite the Union Champions Cup
The defender also has 29 Champions League and Europa League appearances to his name, including six in the 2016 Group Stages against AZ Alkmaar, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Zenit St. Petersburg.
“Tim rang me over Christmas and has been in touch with me constantly over that period, I was really excited” Massey said.
“Tim has been telling me about the great goings on in the club and the young players there, lot of local young lads there who have great potential aswell. It’s a new challenge for myself and I’m excited to get going.
“Everybody who knows me knows I’m a very ambitious person and with the squad Tim and Kevin are building we can definitely be competitive. With that squad, it’s well achievable I believe.
“I’m looking forward to getting stuck in now, as I said it’s a new challenge for myself. As far as Dundalk, I played eight years there, I’ve done my time and I really enjoyed it. This is a new challenge for me and my family and I’m going to take it head on.”
