Peter Hopkins is the latest amateur to sign for a League Of Ireland side this Summer.
The pacey attacking threat joins Division 1 side Longford Town from the AUL Premier A.
Hopkins has most recently been on the books of Junior power house Sheriff having signed from Hardwicke FC in the winter window.
However, the wide man didn’t feature as often as he would have liked for the FAI Junior Cup winners and found it hard to break into the team.
The former St Patricks Athletic Under-19 player did impress in the first half of the season at Hardwicke, but found game time hard to come by at Sheriff.
The talented player now makes the step up to the League of Ireland and is keen to make his mark.
