Ryan Burke signs

Bohemians are delighted to confirm that left-back Ryan Burke is joining the club.

Subject to international clearance, the 21-year-old will be eligible to play when the transfer window opens on July 1.

Burke arrives from Mansfield Town having enjoyed a loan spell with Telford this year.

Having played schoolboy football with St Joseph’s Boys and St Patrick’s Athletic, he joined the Birmingham City Academy in 2017.

He spent four years with Birmingham, signing his first professional contract in 2019, and also enjoyed a loan spell with Yeovil Town during his time there.

Welcoming Burke to Dalymount Park, manager Keith Long said: “I am delighted to have Ryan on board.

“He is a player I know from his schoolboy days at St Joseph’s.

“He is coming to us at a good age to come in with four years at Birmingham and with a decent level of first-team experience with Telford this year.

“We are really looking forward to working with him and we feel he will strengthen the squad and give us great competition in an important position that we need.”
