On the day that the 2019 SSE Airtricity League kicks off, last season’s double winners Dundalk added to their already impressive squad with the addition of former Northern Ireland Youth International Cameron Dummigan from Oldham Athletic on a long-term contract.
The 23 year-old full-back is thrilled to link up with the Champions and a couple of players he’s already familiar with, “I am delighted to be here. Once I heard that Dundalk were interested I wanted to get it done. I am pleased to get the deal over the line. I have known about the club for the past few years and I am keen to be part of the group.”
“It helps knowing a few players in the group. I played with Patrick McEleney and Michael Duffy before. It’s always good. I will get to know everyone quickly and I can’t wait to get started. “
His signing is subject to International Clearance, but the club don’t expect to have any issues. Dummigan passed a medical at Oriel Park and will join the first-team squad immediately.
He’s excited to getting started, “I am buzzing to be here. I am looking forward to being here and getting into the squad.
I want to keep last year’s form going and I want to add to that. I want to be successful with the club.”
Dundalk Chairman Mike Treacy welcomed the club’s new signing, “Cameron is a player we have tracked for some time and we are delighted to welcome him to Dundalk Football Club.”
“Cameron possesses a lot of positive attributes that we believe will see him integrate quickly and easily into our squad.”
“During his time at Burnley, Cameron was involved with the first team squad and whilst he did not make a Premier League appearance, Sean Dyche named him on the bench in the games against Chelsea, Southampton, Watford and Swansea, which says a lot about the talent he has.”
“Cameron has also played all the way through the youth teams for Northern Ireland, and we believe playing at Dundalk FC will give him an excellent platform to win a place in the Northern Ireland senior team.”
“I would also like to place on record my thanks to everyone behind the scenes at the club who have all worked tirelessly to complete this signing, as well as that of our other recruits during the off-season. I’m hugely optimistic about the forthcoming season and can’t wait to see all the supporters at tonight’s game.”
Dundalk Open their season with a live televised clash against Sligo Rovers at Oriel Park tonight.
