NEWMARKET-ON-FERGUS’ Lee Devitt has committed to Treaty Utd for the coming season.
Devitt was one of four players to renew their loyalty to the Limerick club for the upcoming campaign in the Airtricity Men’s First Division, alongside Enda Curran, Conor Barry and Stephen Christopher.
In the 2022 season, Lee made more appearances than any other Treaty United player, lining out for the club on 38 different occasions.
His regular presence on the field of play has become a trend. During his two year stint with Cobh Ramblers, he was one of only two players to feature in every single game in all competitions for the Cork club.
Last season, Lee found the net on two occasions for Tommy Barrett’s Treaty, finishing off a sublime team-move against Maynooth University Town in the Extra.ie FAI Cup and he also hit the target versus Waterford FC in the second leg of the First Division playoffs.
A past pupil of St Caimin’s Community School, Lee rose through the ranks of Shannon Hibs before representing Limerick FC at U17 and U19 level then progressing to make his senior debut for the Blues in 2019.
Exploits of the Devitt family are familiar to soccer followers in Co Clare. Both of his uncles Michael and Kieran are the holders of Premier Division and Clare Cup titles from their time in action with Newmarket Celtic and Rineanna Rovers.
Highly regarded among Treaty fans off the back of a season where he demonstrated his work-ethic and superb movement on and off the ball, Lee said he was “buzzing” to be back for the 2023 season.
“My first year back in Limerick was a memorable one, so it was an easy decision for me to commit again for the new season. The Markets Field is a brilliant place to play your football and I’m looking forward to getting back out there in front of our fans and seeing the place rocking again,” he added.
In June, Lee established his own one on one coaching enterprise LD 1on1 which has proven to be very popular with young and emerging footballers in the county.
