Bohemian FC is delighted to confirm that Katie Lovely has committed to the club for the 2024 season.

The 21-year-old has been with the club since our inaugural season in the U17 League of Ireland in 2018, working her way right through to the first team where she has become a fans favourite at Dalymount Park.

Lovely said: “I had a really good chat with Ken Kiernan when he came in as manager, and I think there are really exciting things happening here this season. Hopefully now we can go on and have a good season.

“Ken is really positive. We are looking forward to building on the foundations that are here already, and we are really looking forward to it.

“It’s a huge privilege to play for Bohs. There is a great group of girls here, a great staff behind us and great facilities. I’m really enjoying it here every year.

“Personally, I want to score more goals next season and get more assists and as a group, we want to be looking at getting to a cup final and moving up higher in the league.”

Manager Ken Kiernan said: “Katie is a player who I have watched in admiration before coming to Bohemians. Having come through the academy here, she will be central to the team’s plans this season.

“Her incredible attitude has already made her a fan and volunteer favourite. She has incredible athleticism and is brilliant at exploiting space with forward runs, and is also able to receive the ball anywhere under pressure and find a solution.

“Katie is highly ambitious and myself and the coaching staff are really excited to be working with her this season.”
