PORTLAOISE soccer player Chris Mulhall has re-signed with Limerick FC ahead of the 2017 SSE Airtricity League season.
Mulhall was a key figure in Limerick FC’s march to the 2016 First Division title, featuring in all but one of their 28 league games and finishing as the club’s joint top scorer with John O’Flynn on 12 goals. His form earned him the club’s Players’ Player of the Year award.
“I’m delighted to be signed back. Since I finished up in October all I wanted to do was sign back,” Mulhall said.
“I was happy to get the call to have talks and it was done within 2-3 days. It was easy, both sides wanted the same.
“I really enjoyed last season. I loved everything about the place. A happy footballer is a good footballer. I’d like to think I was important to the squad.
“The dressing-room is brilliant there – I probably made friends for life with the boys down there.
“I said it before, I play my best football under Martin (Russell) and I think it proved again this year that he gets the best out of me. Everything about the Markets Field, I love it, the supporters are good to me – I love everything about the place, I really do. I’m really enjoying my football at the moment.
Mulhall joined Limerick last December following a second spell at UCD. He also had two stints at Shelbourne either side of time at Shamrock Rovers.
