St Peters have pulled of a bit of a late transfer coup.
The FAI Junior Cup open draw regulars haven’t just brought in experience from the League of Ireland they have signed a current club captain at the peak of his powers.
Niall Scullion has decided to end a 12 year stint with the Roddy Collins managed Athlone Town and has rejoined his local side St Peters.
Scullion, who wore the arm band for the struggling First Division outfit this season, was part of the squad that won the First Division back in 2013 and returns to the CCFL at the age of 30 and with some good years ahead of him.
The defender has Peters previous and was part of the side that won the CCFL title two seasons ago.
“I’m delighted to be back at Peters,” Scullion told extratime.ie.
“Altogether I played with Athlone for 12 years, having made debut for senior team in 2005 in St Mel’s Park. I always gave 100 % when wore the black and black jersey for over 100 appearances. Not many local lads from Athlone have a league winner’s medal for their home town.”
