Clare youths captain Liam Buckley has signed for Treaty Utd’s U19 side.
Buckley who starred in defence for both Bridge Utd and his county in recent seasons will now be lining out in the underage League of Ireland after putting pen to paper on a deal with the Limerick club.
Liam played crucial roles as Bridge Utd tasted success at U17 and youths level. He was joint captain of the Sixmilebridge side that claimed League and Cup glory at U17 level in 2019. When Bridge secured a League and Cup double at Youths level last year, Buckley was once again to the fore.
Mark Culbert who managed Liam in recent years at Bridge Utd said, “Liam is a player who always wants to improve, has a great attitude to training and his efforts have paid off, we are all very proud of him”.
