Kavanagh Part Of Attacking Trio Who Have Left Drogs

There may be a few new faces at Drogheda United soon as Daryl Kavanagh, Matthew Rooney and Michael Scott have all left the Louth club.

Former league winner with St. Pats, Kavanagh, who had netted three times in 12 league appearances for the Boynesiders since he signed at the beginning of the season has accepted an offer to play in the United States.

Both Rooney and Scott have left the club in search of first team football. Former Portadown forward Rooney made just two substitute appearances this season, in away defeats to Derry City and Sligo Rovers. Michael Scott, another forward, made six appearances this season, one as a starter in a defeat at home to Bohemians.

It looks as though boss Johnny McDonnell has already begun to dig into the transfer market, with the addition of a former Drogheda underage player. The Drogheda manager has reportedly signed defender Manuel Kaguako, who was most recently with Dundalk.

Drogheda fans will, however, be forced to wait for a couple of weeks until they see the 19-year-old in a claret and blue shirt, as he is heading to South Korea as part of the Ireland squad for the 2015 World University Games, which takes place from the 3rd-14th of July.

In addition to this, former Drogheda midfielder Eric Foley has been training with the Louth side following his release from Athlone Town. Striker Mark Quigley, who was linked with Drogheda at the start of the season, has also been training with the club.
