Limerick Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Robbie Williams. The Yorkshire native travelled to Limerick yesterday to formally sign his contract and he will go straight into the squad for tonight’s friendly match against Waterford United at the RSC [KO 7.45pm].The versatile defender can play across the back four, but has played mostly at left back in a career that has seen him earn over 200 league appearances across clubs such as Barnsley, Plymouth Argyle and Blackpool.
Speaking on the signing, manager Stuart Taylor said “We are delighted to get a player of Robbie’s talent and experience on board. That experience will be of great benefit to us in the team as well as helping the younger players in the squad as well as those I’ll look to develop from our U19 squad.”
“It’s an important signing for Limerick FC and a sign of the growing reputation of the club that we can bring in players who are also attracting interest from clubs in the UK. It’s a testament to the work the club is doing on and off the pitch.”
Limerick Football Club is in advanced negotiations with a number of players and will be announcing more additions to the squad in the coming days as Stuart Taylor looks to finalise his squad ahead of the pre-season trip to Scotland next Friday.
