Newmarket-on-Fergus’ Harvey Cullinan has signed for Sheffield Utd.

Cullinan’s move to The Blades was confirmed over the weekend while the teenager has had regular trips to English clubs over recent years having impressed scouts when in action at club and county level.

Harvey will play with Sheffield’s professional development squad. The midfielder’s signing comes on a very positive weekend for the club, their second promotion in three seasons mean they will be competing in the Premier League in the autumn.

At present, there are four Irish internationals in Chris Wilder’s first team namely Enda Stevens, John Egan, David McGoldrick and Scott Hogan.

16 year old Harvey has previously trained with the Irish 15s side and was a vital player for the Newmarket Celtic youths that reached the FAI Youths Cup quarter-final for the first time in their history where they were knocked out by Stella Maris at the beginning of March,

His goal for the Clare youths against Waterford secured second place in Group D of the FAI Inter League Youths Cup. The side were subsequently knocked out in the quarter-finals by Inishowen.

A student at St Caimin’s, Cullinan is a past pupil of Scoil na Maighdine Mhuire, Newmarket-on-Fergus.

“We would like to congratulate Harvey, his family and all the coaches who have helped in his development,” Newmarket Celtic wrote on Twitter. The Clare Schoolboys/Schoolgirls Soccer League (CSSL) have said Cullinan is “the first player to come through our CSSL Elite Training Programme” and sign with an English club.
