Former Ireland International Stephen Elliot Signs For Drogheda United

Drogheda United have announced the signing of former Ireland international Stephen Elliott.

The Dubliner won nine caps for Ireland in the mid-2000s, scoring once, the winner against Cyprus in a qualifer for the 2006 World Cup.

Elliott joins the newly-promoted Drogheda after training with the club in recent weeks. The 33-year-old played for Shelbourne last season but left the club by mutual consent in August.

Drogheda manager Pete Mahon said he has recognised a hunger in Elliott to continue scoring goals.

Stephen will add to our attacking options and although he has played in the Premier League and has represented his country, he has succeeded my expectations as a player.

He still has the hunger to score goals and he was very impressed with what he has seen at the club to date. “We are extremely happy with the squad we have assembled and the players have put a tremendous effort in and are looking forward to getting games under their belts.
