TREATY UNITED’s Clare contingent is growing for next season.

Newmarket-on-Fergus native Lee Devitt has signed with the Limerick club for the 2022 SSE Airtricity League First Division season. He said he is “buzzing to get going” with a “new chapter”.

He joins from Cobh Ramblers where he has been part of their squad since February 2020. The midfielder made 26 appearances for Cobh last season, in the previous campaign he was one of only two players to feature in every single game in all competitions for the club. Ramblers commended him for “exemplary service in Claret and Blue”.

Devitt first came to prominence with Shannon Hibernians before lining out at U17 and U19 level for Limerick FC. He made his senior debut for the Blues in 2019 before signing with the Cork outfit. His uncle Michael previously lined out for the Clare Oscar Traynor side while his uncle Kieran was a potent striker for both Rineanna Rovers and Newmarket Celtic.

Captain Jack Lynch from Shannon has committed to the club for next season. The full-back was among one of the fan favourites in the club’s debut season. A past pupil of St Patrick’s Comprehensive, Jack scored five goals and provided three assists as Treaty reached the First Division promotion play-offs.

Callum McNamara also of Newmarket-on-Fergus has re-signed with the Markets Field based club. The midfielder made his first start for Treaty in May and would go on to make twenty two appearances. He was also named the Fan’s player of the month for June. His loss from Newmarket Celtic’s spine has been telling with the reigning Clare League and Cup champions suffering premature exits in both the FAI and Munster Junior Cups.

After making twenty appearance for Treaty last season, Ardnacrusha’s Joel Coustrain is also back on board for 2022. He said he is “delighted to be back with this club and I can’t wait to be back 100 percent ready to go for 2022. I’m looking forward to playing in front of the fans again also the support was different class last season”.

Tommy Barrett who is based in Sixmilebridge remains in charge of Treaty Utd.
