Blues Secure Ronan Coughlan Signing

Waterford FC is delighted to confirm the signing of Ronan Coughlan.

The 26-year-old striker joins the Blues ahead of the 2023 promotion push.

Coughlan spent the past two seasons with St Patrick’s Athletic, scoring in the shootout as his side won the FAI Cup.

The Limerick-native has also had spells with Sligo Rovers, Cork City and Bray Wanderers, having signed for Huddersfield Town as a 17-year-old in 2014.

Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie, Ronan said:

“I’m delighted to be here now and I can’t wait to get going! The club is hungry for success, like myself, so it’s a great match up!

“Once I spoke with the gaffer and he spoke about the plans the club have and what I can bring to the table, it felt like a no brainer for me personally. Hopefully I can bring goals, experience and much more to help get the club back to where it belongs.

“It’s been too long since I’ve had a proper chance to show what I can do when I’m given the opportunity. I’m extremely hungry for success and hopefully it will start on Friday night.

“First and foremost, we want to be right up there come the end of the season, we won’t shy away from that, we know where we need to be and what needs to be done in order to achieve that outcome. For myself personally, I want to help the team as much as possible on and off the pitch!”
