Kilbarrack United have confirmed three signings ahead of the new season.
It seems the side that have traded the AUL top flight for the LSL, where they will play in the sixth tier, haven’t lost their ‘big club’ appeal if the in comings are anything to go by.
Indeed, they have brought Mark Nolan back to the fold. Nolan played Senior Sunday last year at Morton Stadium, the defender wore the captains arm band at Drumcondra.
Nolan played youths football with Baldoyle United and Shelbourne before spending 2006/07 with Celtic in the SPL. The defender never made the first team at Parkhead and was released in the summer of ’07, returning home to play with Bohemians’ A Championship side in 2008.
Spells at Athlone and Drigheda followed, before he signed for Kilbarrack and after a stint with Drums he is ‘home’ ahead of what could prove an exciting season for United.
Also returning to the fold for the Greendale residents is Alan Clarke. Clarke resigns after a year out with injury and will be part of a squad determined to win promotion in their first LSL season.
In another eye catching move United have also signed left sided player Anthony Moran who played up North with Warrenpoint last season.
