Bohemian FC can confirm that Danny McGrath has joined Belgian side Lommel SK for an undisclosed fee.

Having joined from St Kevin’s Boys, the midfielder has progressed right through the Bohemians academy system, becoming a regular for the U19s, and winning the Enda McGuill Cup last year.

The 17-year-old signed his first professional contract with Bohemians in January of this year, is also vice-captain of the Ireland U17s, and featured for the first team in the Leinster Senior Cup win against Shelbourne this season.

Speaking as he signed for Lommel SK today, McGrath said: “I am delighted to have this opportunity to develop to my full potential.

“I am also very thankful to all the coaches at Bohs, St Kevin’s and Balbriggan FC who have helped me along the way so far.”

Bohemians Head of Academy Craig Sexton said: “We are extremely proud of Danny’s progress and development.

“Danny has had a really good upbringing in terms of his football and has already enjoyed personal success in his own right in terms of international recognition.

“He is another success story of the academy system, and is making a positive step forward in his career and hopefully in time we will see him progressing in senior football and have a fruitful career.

“He is going to balance his football with his education when he is in Belgium too, so he is going to finish his Leaving Cert, which is very important and a big positive.

“Everyone at the club, and all the coaches who have worked with him at St Kevin’s and at Bohs, wish him the very best with the move and with his future career.”
