Sacred Heart Killinarden have kicked off transfer season with a bang.
The Tallaght outfit today confirmed the first major Dublin signing of the Summer.
Stephen ‘Congo’ Conlon has agreed to the join the Killinarden Hill outfit ahead of the new season.
Considering Conlon’s standing as one of the top amateur keepers in game the move represents some of a coup for Heart.
The net minder was on the books at Shamrock Rovers before joining Longford Town in 2010. The net minder made 14 appearances for Town in his first season, but departed for amateur football in July of 2011.
The goal keeper joined Bangor Celtic and established a reputation as one of the countries top amateur custodians while at the club.
‘Congo’ moved down the road to Crumlin United in ahead of the 2016/17 term, but returned to Bangor mid way through the term and was number 1 at the club last season.
The experienced, but still relatively young keeper, will not mid nets in Tallaght and at LSL Senior1A outfit Sacred Heart.
Securing a top flight regular is a big move for the team who recently confirmed Paul O’Brien as new manager, but their support know better than to get too excited. Last Summer saw a host of known talent come through the gates at the foothill of the Dublin mountains. Indeed so talented was the squad a serious promotion push was expected, yet the Tallaght side finished ninth and 21 points of Newtown Rangers and promotion.
