Waterford Sign Damien Delaney For 2019 Season
By PJ Browne

Waterford have announced the signing of Damien Delaney for the 2019 season.

Delaney, who has nine caps for Ireland, also made 130 appearances for Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The 37-year-old returned to Cork City last summer 20 years after leaving the club for a long career in England.

However, his second spell with Cork lasted just six months. It was announced in early December that he would leave Turners Cross with a year remaining on his contract.

"I’m really looking forward to it," Delaney told the Waterford FC club website about his latest move.

"I spoke to Alan [Reynolds] and he told me the plans he has for the club and what he wants to do here and I want to be part of it.

"I played against the club last season of course and the pitch is excellent and they were a good footballing side, and I feel I still have a lot to give so it’s great to be able to come in.

"Europe is massive for the club, too. The club did so well last season and deserve to be playing in Europe in 2019. I feel I can contribute to that and I’m really happy to do so.

"I finished with Cork in November and enjoyed Christmas but I can’t wait to be back at it, back to work and looking forward to the season ahead."
