Galway FC have completed the signings of Stephen Walsh and Jason Molloy.

The versatile Walsh (23) and attacker Molloy (25) have both featured for Galway United and Mervue United.

Manager Tommy Dunne has been busy in the west as Airtricity League football makes a welcome return to Eamonn Deacy Park next March.

Dunne, who continues to hold discussions with several players, is encouraged that deals have been agreed with Walsh and Molloy.

"It has been a hectic couple of weeks since I have taken the job here, but it is great to get the lads on board.

"The two of them were mainstays of a Mervue United side that did quite well in the First Division last season.

"Both of them have also previously played with Galway United so they are fairly experienced players for their age."

Dunne expects to make further announcements shortly too. "In the next few days I hope to bring in several more players to bolster our squad.

"We will be ready to start pre-season training in mid January and it is an exciting time for everybody associated with the club. We all cannot wait to get started then."
