Hoare and McCann sign for Rovers
Shamrock Rovers have further strengthened their squad ahead of the 2021 season. Sean Hoare has made the switch from Oriel Park to Tallaght Stadium, signing with Rovers on a permanent deal. The defender scored against the Hoops only last week in the FAI Cup Final victory. The moves marks the end of his successful career at Dundalk where he won two league titles and two FAI Cups.
Rovers manager Stephen Bradley expressed his delight with the signing: “He fits our type of profile for a defender and he’s very versatile. He’s a good age as well so he’s one we’ve liked for quite some time.”
Veteran midfielder Chris McCann also joins the league winners. McCann boasts an impressive C.V. having spent time at Burnley, Wigan Athletic and MLS side Atlanta United, where he won the MLS Cup.
Despite interest from England, McCann opted for Dublin and is an acquisition that “can improve us (Rovers) as a team and as a squad and make us better” according to Bradley.
