Waterford FC have announced the signing of goalkeeper Tadhg Ryan ahead of the 2020 season.

Ryan joins the club having spent last season with Cork City. The 22-year-old shot-stopper has also spent time in England where he played with Huddersfield Town and Radcliffe. 

Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie the Limerick native said he was delighted to be joining the Blues for the upcoming campaign.

"I'm delighted to have signed with the club for the coming season. I really want to get started now and kick on and hopefully give the fans something to shout about for the season.

"Speaking with the manager (Alan Reynolds), I can see his ambitions for the club. I’m a very ambitious person, so I can see the two of us getting along very well. It just seems that everything here is right for me.

"As a keeper, there’s a special relationship between you and the goalkeeping coach. You look at Waterford and I’m going to be training under Dirk Heinen. I cannot wait for that. I know for sure he’ll be able to help me improve my game, and help to bring me to the next level.
