A message from Keith Long

To all Bohemian supporters, I would like, on behalf of the players and staff, to wish you all a peaceful, healthy and prosperous new year.

The understanding, togetherness and chemistry between players, staff and supporters has been fantastic and we want to strengthen that bond in 2019.

There has been significant change of personnel in the off-season and we have said goodbye to some really fantastic people.

The new year, however, offers us different challenges and an opportunity to work with a new group of young, hungry players who are prepared to represent its people with pride and character.

With your valued and continued support, we look forward to 2019 with positivity and optimism.

LUKE WADE-SLATER SIGNS

Bohemians have completed the signing of Luke Wade-Slater from Stevenage Borough.

Wade-Slater, 20, is a product of Bohs’ partners St Kevin’s Boys and joined Stevenage from them in 2015.

Most recently, the winger has been on loan at Kings Langley where he scored five goals in seven games for the Southern League Premier Division side.

Welcoming his new signing to Dalymount Park, manager Keith Long said: “Luke is someone we’ve been monitoring since the summer.

“He’s a wide player with an eye for goal. I’m delighted to have him on board.

“Luke is a good lad, a good player, and has had a good schooling with St Kevin’s.

“Like all of the young lads coming home and into the squad, this is going to be a different challenge for him and a step up.

“But he has quality and I believe he has the hunger in his belly to learn and succeed at Bohemians.”

KEITH BUCKLEY RE-SIGNS FOR 2019

Bohemians are delighted to announce Keith Buckley has signed a new deal to remain at the club next season.

Buckley, 26, has amassed 182 league appearances in two spells with the Gypsies.

He broke into the first team under Pat Fenlon at the start of the 2011 season and soon endeared himself to supporters when the then 19-year-old scored in his first-ever Dublin derby against Shamrock Rovers.

He departed for a season-long stint with Bray Wanderers in 2017 but returned ahead of the 2018 season and quickly re-established himself as a firm fans’ favourite.

Buckley said: “I had actually agreed things for next season with Keith Long a few weeks ago but then I went travelling for a month so I’m glad to finally sign officially.

“It’s an exciting place to be at and there is a great buzz around the place. You appreciate what we have here as a club and with our supporters even more having been away for the year.”

Bohs have lost some senior personnel this closed season but Buckley sees that as a chance for him to evolve further as a player and to also help and encourage younger players who have been added to Long’s side for next season.

He said: “I personally want to push on. I’m still only 26 but I’ve played over 180 times for Bohs and over 200 games in the league, so I feel that I can have a lot to offer with my experience.

“We’ve lost a couple of experienced players, which is obviously a blow, so it’s up to the likes of myself to push on further and help fill that void.

“While we’ve lost players, we’ve brought in some really exciting ones too.

“Keith has a great eye for a young player and he’s shown that over the last few seasons. There’s no doubt in my mind that we can continue to progress as a team under him.

“Obviously it will take a while to for players to settle in. You look at when Dan Casey when he came in mid-season in 2017, it took him a while to get up to speed.

“Darragh Leahy came in last season, didn’t really know the league at the start and then went on to have an amazing season for us.

“So it can take a while and we all have to be patient at the start but players will improve if given time.

“To be honest I’m a bit jealous of the young lads coming here! I’d love to be 18 or 19 again and coming in and learning from Keith and Trevor Croly.

“Trevor breaks things down and makes the game so simple for you and everything is so professional. I’ve learnt so much from him in training in only a year and I’m still learning.

“Learning from them here at 18 or 19 is a great place to be for any player and it will stand to them and the team.”

Signed for 2019: Andy Lyons, Cristian Magerusan, Conor Levingston, Daniel Grant, Daniel Mandroiu, Darragh Leahy, Derek Pender, Dinny Corcoran, James Finnerty, James Talbot, Keith Buckley, Keith Ward, Kevin Devaney, Michael Barker, Niall Corbet, Paddy Kirk, Promise Omochere, Rob Cornwall, Robbie McCourt, Ryan Graydon, Ryan Swan.

KEVIN DEVANEY RE-SIGNS

Bohemians are delighted to announce that Kevin Devaney has re-signed for 2019.

The winger, 28, rejoined the Gypsies at the start of the 2018 season having originally played for the club between 2012 and 2014.

He is best remembered from his first spell as the man whose goal gave Bohs their first-ever win over rivals Shamrock Rovers in Tallaght Stadium in 2012 in what was only his second only start for the club.

Returning this year, the Sligo man became a key man under manager Keith Long, chipping in with five league goals in 26 appearances.

Long said: “I’m delighted to have Kevin commit to us for next season. He developed into an important figure for us. He is a very good player – defensively and offensively.

“He has developed a great partnership on the left-hand side with Darragh Leahy and a lot of our play came down that wing this year, so it’s important that we can keep that partnership going for next season and build upon it.”

Signed for 2019: Andy Lyons, Cristian Magerusan, Conor Levingston, Daniel Grant, Daniel Mandroiu, Darragh Leahy, Derek Pender, Dinny Corcoran, James Finnerty, James Talbot, Keith Ward, Kevin Devaney, Michael Barker, Niall Corbet, Paddy Kirk, Promise Omochere, Rob Cornwall, Robbie McCourt, Ryan Graydon, Ryan Swan.
