Waterford v Bohemians - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division

Bohemians are delighted to confirm Michael Barker has re-signed for 2020.

Barker, who can play at full-back or centre-back, rejoined the Gypsies this time last year after five years away with UCD, Bray Wanderers and St Patrick’s Athletic.

The 26-year-old came through the Bohs U20 team and previously played for the first team in 2013 and 2014 under.

But he had to wait until May of this year for his first taste of action during his second spell at the club after agonisingly suffering a hamstring tear in the final week of pre-season.

He went on to play an important role in the club’s drive to qualify for Europe, however, his 93rd-minute winner away to Waterford a particular highlight.

It brings to 24 the number of first-team players signed for 2020: Andre Wright, Andy Lyons, Anthony Breslin, Conor Levingston, Cristian Magerusan, Dan Casey, Danny Grant, Danny Mandroiu, Dawson Devoy, Dinny Corcoran, Glen McAuley, James Finnerty, James Talbot, JJ Lunney, Keith Buckley, Keith Ward, Kris Twardek, Luke Wade-Slater, Michael Barker, Paddy Kirk, Promise Omochere, Rob Cornwall, Ross Tierney, Stephen McGuinness.
