Shane Doherty has signed a new contract with Galway United.

The 24-year-old attacker made a big impact at the club after rejoining the Tribesmen midway through the 2020 season.

Doherty is a firm fan favourite with the Eamonn Deacy Park faithful due to his attacking playstyle.

The former Rowan University player possesses electric pace, an unbelievable work rate and a directness that has troubled League of Ireland defenders over the last two seasons.

The New Jersey native was one of the first names on John Caulfield teamsheet during United's promotion tilt in the second half of the season.

Caulfield feels a player with Dohety's drive and determination is only going to improve in the coming years and he's excited to have retained him for 2021.
