Waterford FC is delighted to announce the signing of Roland Idowu.

The attacking midfielder, who has played underage for the Republic of Ireland, joins ahead of the 2022 season which begins next month.

Idowu spent the latter half of the 2021 with Bohemians; playing against the Blues in Dalymount Park last October. The new signing spent the previous four year with Southampton and Cardiff City.

The highly-rated 20-year-old has attracted much interest during the off season but has penned a deal to join Ian Morris’ side for the 2022 season.

Speaking to, Roland said: “I’m very happy to be here. I know a lot about the club and know some of the players and I’m looking forward to getting going.

“Training has been really sharp, the players are really working hard and the setup is fantastic. I’ve settled in well and everyone has been great.

“Confidence is high going into the season now, everyone is happy and I’m really excited to get back on the pitch. I’ve heard how great the fans are and even playing against Waterford last season I could hear the noise so I can’t wait to play in front of them.”

Speaking to, manager Ian Morris said: “Roland is a fantastic player for us to have in. He’s physically strong, quick and can finish off both feet. The competition for places is really strong.

“We fought off competition from other clubs at home and across the water to have Roland here. He wants to be here, and that’s testament to the environment the staff and players have created.”
