EVAN FERGUSON JOINS BRIGHTON

Bohemians v Finn Harps - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division

Bohemians can confirm that Evan Ferguson has transferred to English Premier League side Brighton.

The striker, who came through St Kevin’s and the Bohs-SKB Academy, became the youngest player to represent the Bohemians first team when he made his debut away to Derry City in September 2019.

The 16-year-old most recently won the SSE Airtricity U17 League with Bohs-SKB, scoring in the final against Shamrock Rovers last month.

Son of former Bohemians defender Barry, Evan has represented the Bohs U19s in the Uefa Youth League and Ireland at underage level up to U17.

Bohemians first-team manager Keith Long said: “Evan has progressed through the Bohs-SKB Academy system, playing in our LOI U15, U17 and U19 teams, and he also became the youngest player to ever play for the Bohemians first team.

“Under the guidance of Karl Lambe, Rob Doran and Alan Caffrey at St Kevin’s, and later with Ger Browne, Jimmy Mowlds and Derek Pender at Bohs-SKB, Evan has developed into one of the country‚Äôs brightest prospects.

“Everyone at Bohemians and St Kevin’s wishes Evan the very best of luck with Brighton and we hope to see him representing Ireland at senior international level in the future.”
