Limerick native Jason Hughes has penned a deal at the club having been a mainstay in the side for the majority of last year.
Having Limerick’s 2014 Young Player of the Year back in his ranks for 2015 will give Martin Russell’s side a boost as they aim to halt what has been a disastrous beginning to their campaign.
An opening day 3-0 defeat at the hands of Limerick, followed by an EA Sports Cup loss to Cobh Ramblers and a 5-0 hammering on Friday night away to Cork City has not given the Shannonsiders much to celebrate thus far.
Speaking to limerickfc.ie, the 23-year-old was positive about the rest of the campaign, however.
“Obviously that’s not the start that you would have hoped for or wanted but obviously it’s only upwards from here so hopefully we can just kick off this Saturday and get three points.”
the 23-year-old midfielder will also look to improve on last season stating,
“It’s been a long wait for myself so I’m just glad to get back and hopefully just kick-on from where I left off last year.”
2014 was a solid year for Hughes, featuring in all but one league clash until a suspension and subsequent knee injury put paid to his campaign at the end of September.
Limerick host Longford Town on Saturday evening and Hughes will be available for selection as the Shannonsiders will look to end their rotten opening to the season.
