Between the Stripes daily transfer update 22/11/17

Article by Kieran Burke. It has been a day dominated by Simon Madden’s shock departure from Shamrock Rovers but just down the road, St.Patrick’s Athletic have begun their squad building for 2018.

Joining the ‘’Saints’’ from troubled Bray Wanderers is midfielder Ryan Brennan while putting pen to paper on contract extensions at Richmond Park are Ian Bermingham, Graham Kelly and Conan Byrne.

Interestingly, Bray Wanderers are now the only Premier Division club yet to announce any squad members old or new for next season with the County Wicklow side also without a manager at present, following the resignation of Harry Kenny off the back of a turbulent year off the pitch at Bray.

With an FAI investigation into alleged betting irregularities involving Wanderers still unresolved, this is an uncertain time for followers of the ‘’Seagulls’’ who have almost become accustomed to off-field uncertainty over the off-season in recent years.

  • Elsewhere today, Dundalk and Derry City are expected to battle it out for the signature of First Division golden-boot winner Georgie Kelly of UCD.
