Ballynanty Rvs complete major coup in signing Gary O’Neill

Ballynanty Rovers announced the signing of former Drogheda United striker Gary O’Neill (left) in time fogaryoneillr Sunday’s game versus Fairview Rgs.

O’Neill came to National attention when, at the peak of his career in the League Of Ireland, announced a diagnosis of testicular cancer.

After a successful battle he is now ready to get back to the playing field and Balla are delighted to offer him the opportunity.

The Blues will remember O’Neill from their FAI Senior Cup game in 2014 when the striker netted twice in Drogheda’s 4-0 win.

Balla will be further boosted by the news that Jason Hughes’ clearance has finally come through and he should be available for the weekend also.

Four Limerick Players in Irish Squad

He will be joined in the panel by fellow Limerick player Pat Mullins (Pike Rvs), Stephen Bradley and Danny O’Neill (Both Janesboro) all members of Gerry Davis Irish panel for the upcoming Regional Cup and it is hoped all four will be capped on the night.
Neville, along with Carew Park’s Alex Purcell have been put on standby but Wednesday’s game has given the Pike man an early elevation. screenhunter_1226-sep-08-22-53
