Bohemian FC is delighted to confirm that Lynn Craven has committed to the club for the 2024 season.

It will be the Dundalk native’s second season at Dalymount Park having previously played with Shelbourne, Wexford Youths and DLR Waves.

Craven said: “I am absolutely delighted to have re-signed. On a personal level, we didn’t finish the season the way I hoped last season, but it was a really enjoyable season for me. I really enjoy everything that Bohs is about.

“When Ken Kiernan came in, and shared his plans for where he wants the club to go in the future, it was so exciting and it was a no-brainer for me that this is the club I want to be at. I really think we can push on and do good things.

“The thing that stood out to me when speaking to Ken was the attacking way he wants us to play. Nobody could argue that defensively we were solid last season, but what let us down was scoring goals.

“Ken is really putting an emphasis on we are going to be a team that goes and plays this year. As an attacking full-back, that is the kind of football I love, and I’m really looking forward to working with him.

“I was new coming in last season and getting my place in the starting XI was a hard task but I managed to hold on to it but with a new manager and new players coming in, that is going to bring healthy competition.

“Ken has the same attitude that I have. One of the first things he said is ‘we are here to win’ and there is no reason with the players we are bringing in and the core we have here already that we cannot aim to win leagues and cups.”

Manager Kiernan said: “Lynn is an extremely popular person within the group, and very good at giving information in real-time to her teammates in-game.

“She is an excellent defender in 1v1 scenarios, loves to get forward with a brilliant delivery into the box or to find an attacker’s run.

“Lynn played a lot of games last season and will be a crucial player for us this season. She is a leader within the group, on and off the pitch, and we look forward to the impact she can make this season.”
