Ashbourne United have staged a bit of a transfer coup within days of the winter window opening.
The AUL Division 1 Sunday side have signed Paddy Brophy from Kibarrack United.
Signing a Premier A player when you in the bottom half of the four tier is news enough, but signing Brophy big news for the club and the division.
The no nonsense centre back brings bags of experience and quality and joins his local club at peak age.
Ashbourne have acquired a defender who has represented Ireland at Junior level, played for St Kevin’s and Kilbarrack in the Premier A and has also lifted the FAI Intermediate Cup during a stint at LSL big guns Crumlin United.
