Derek Daly Becomes Second Athlone Town Player To Re-Sign For 2022

Michael Schlingermann was the first on Saturday.

Martin Russell's Athlone Town squad for the upcoming season is continuing to take shape. 

Micheál Schlingermann became the first player to commit for 2022 on Saturday and it hasn't taken long for defender Derek Daly to do the same. 

The former Cherry Orchard and Chesterfield man joined the midlanders from Bray Wanderers ahead of last season. 

The 24-year-old was one of the first names on the teamsheet for both of 'the town's' managers last year, ending the year with 24 appearances and two goals to his name. 

Daly was among the leaders in terms of minutes played with 2,024, behind only Schlingermann, James Doona, Kurtis Byrne and Dylan Hand. 

His versatility will be seen as a key element to his return after he stood in at full-back, centre half and midfield throughout the course of the 2020/21 League of Ireland First Division Campaign.
