Waterford FC Sign Ryan Burke

Waterford FC is delighted to announce the signing of left back Ryan Burke. 

The 22-year-old lined out for the Blues in Saturday’s final pre-season match at the RSC against St. Patrick’s Athletic

The Dubliner played his schoolboy football with St Joseph’s and St Patrick’s Athletic before moving to Birmingham City.

Ryan spent time on loan at Yeovil Town before signing for Mansfield Town; returning to the League of Ireland last summer where he joined up with Bohemians for the second half of the 2022 season.

Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie, Ryan said:  

“I’m absolutely buzzing to have signed and can’t wait to get going. The ambitions of the club and the club itself drew me to sign. I’ve spoken to players who have previously played at the club and they loved their time here.

“I had a good chat with the gaffer and heard how ambitious he was to take the club forward and I’m buzzing to be part of it. I’ve been in since Saturday and met the players and staff and everyone was very welcoming, and there’s some real quality in the squad. The facilities are unbelievable and there’s a great fan base too who I’m looking forward to playing in front of.

“We will be looking for a good start against Wexford this Friday to kick start our season and we all know our aim this season and that’s to win the league. With the squad we have built, I think we’re certainly capable and hopefully I can play a big part in this.”
