16 time capped Irish International Keith Fahey will strut his significant stuff in the Leinster Senior League next season.
The former Birmingham City player has signed for Senior Sunday title hopefuls Bluebell United.
The midfielder was part of Crumlin United’s backroom team as a strength and conditioner coach last term, but has been persuaded to come out of retirement by Bluebell boss Andy Noonan.
Fahey has been appearing in pre season and was said to be stand out in a friendly win over Cabinteely over the weekend.
It’s Fahey’s second stint at the club. The talented Dubliner, who was a trainee at Arsenal and Aston Villa, used the club and the amateur game as a spring board back to pro football after he returned home from England back in 2003.
From the Red Cow, Fahey made the short trip to Richmond Park and St Patricks Athletic, a stint with Drogheda followed, but it was during his second stint with the Saints that he began to catch the eye again.
After some fine performances in Europe and a PFAI Player of the Year win Fahey moved to Alex McLeish’s Birmingham and eventually ended up playing Premier League football and for Ireland.
The player returned home in 2014 and retired after seasons with St Pats and Shamrock Rovers.
However, the popular football will don the boots and the blue of Bluebell again ahead of what promises to be yet another exciting Senior Sunday title race.
