Gannon: Exciting Times Ahead
Dundalk full back Sean Gannon couldn’t hide his delight as he put pen to paper on a three year deal at the club.
Speaking to dundalkfc.com after signing his new deal Gannon is looking to add to the great nights he has had at the club already.
“I am absolutely delighted to be staying. I am so pleased to be committing my future to the club. I have had great times here at the club.
“There has been plenty of great nights and I am looking to have many more here. We have been so successful since I joined the club and there has been so many highlights over that time but beating BATE Borisov in Tallaght Stadium is up there.
“It was such a special night for everyone at the club and it qualified us for the group stages of European competition. It elevated the club even more and everyone rallied around each other. We had so much to look forward to after that.
“Playing in the Europa League Group Stages was massive for us and showed we had that capability.
“I want to get back on that stage though and that’s the plan. ”
He also reflected on the 2017 season with the new additions to the group and he feels the time off will help recharge everyone and they will be ready to go again in 2018.
“Last season there was a lot of new players at the club and for them to win a trophy in their first year at the club was good for them. They have got a taste for it now.
“To lose the FAI Cup in the way we did was tough but the squad is strong. The lads will go off now and recharge in the off season, come back strong, have a good pre-season and be ready to go next year. ”
The three year-deal means that the Dublin native will be at the club until the end of the 2020 season and is looking forward to being here for that time and feels there’s ‘exciting times’ at the club at the moment.
“There’s exciting times at the club. There’s a lot of ambition here. We are going to have a good squad of players here. Stephen (Kenny) always brings in quality players each year.
“I am just delighted to have got my own deal sorted, got it down now and I am looking forward to being here for a long time.”
