Cabinteely have pulled off something of a surprise with the news that they’ve signed striker Ryan Swan after he left Exeter City. Swan has previously played for UCD and Bray Wanderers.
Swan started his League of Ireland career with Bray Wanderers before moving to UCD where he was a key part of UCD’s Europa League campaign in 2015. Swan scored all three of their goals in their four European matches and was awarded SWAI Player of the Month for the month of July. Swan scored 18 goals for UCD in two seasons, earning a move to League 2 side Exeter City in February.
Speaking on the signing Swan said “I am delighted to be here. It’s a great club, Cabo are a club on the rise. I have good ties with Pat and I wanted to link up again with him. I can’t wait to get going now. The target now is to get in the team, get scoring goals and enjoying my football again.”
Director of Football and First Team Manager Pat Devlin expressed his delight at Ryan choosing Cabo’ despite interest from a number of clubs. “We are delighted to have Ryan here, it’s a brilliant opportunity for Ryan and Cabinteely. It’s a great fit, he’s been out injured since coming back from Exeter, now it’s an opportunity to put himself in the shop window and show everyone what he can do.”
