Yesterday we saw the club announce that Paudie O’Connor had signed a new deal to stay with the Whites for the foreseeable future.
The young defender earned some decent minutes last season when we started experimenting with the side and I was fairly impressed with what he had to offer.
Certainly, there is a good defender in there and with time and experience we should be able to mould him into quite the player.
Here, then, is the club confirmation of the deal:

It’ll be a big boost for him too.
The defender, like many of our players, will have been wondering where he stood under Marcelo Bielsa and, clearly, he figures in the Argentine’s plans at some point.
He’s one for the future, really, but he’s certainly got all the attributes we want from a defender and so I’m pleased we’ve got him tied down.
