Bray Wanderers have dipped back into amateur football to bolster their squad for the remainder of the season.
The Seaguls have taken Craig Walsh back to pro football and signed the midfielder from LSL Senior Sunday side Crumlin United.
The 26 year old, who was a contestant on Sky One’s Football’s Next Star eight years ago, entered the amateur ranks when he signed for fourth tier side Inchicore Altheltic from Shelbourne back in August of 2016.
A standout season for then the promoted side saw him register a host of Goal of the Season contenders and proved vital as Inchicore Athletic won promotion at the first attempt.
His form caught the eye of Gary Howlett the then LSL select manager and prompted a number of LOI of Ireland sides to offer him a contract.
However, Walsh elected to stay amateur and signed for Senior Sunday big guns Crumlin United. Following another impressive amateur innings the midfielder with, who played for the Irish amateur squad against England recently, has now returned to the LOI and has penciled a short term deal with Bray.
The former Shelbourne and Shamrock Rovers player renews acquaintances with Seagulls boss Martin Russell, who brought him to UCD in 2013.
Crumlin United confirmed the new on social media today.
