Drinan Rejoins Waterford on Loan
Wednesday, 13th Feb 2019 22:16
Town striker Aaron Drinan has rejoined Waterford on loan until June 30th with the Irish season about to get under way.
The 20-year-old moved to the Blues from the League of Ireland side in his native Ireland in January 2018 but hasn’t made a first-team appearance despite having been on the bench on five occasions under Mick McCarthy.
"I'm delighted to be back at the club. I really enjoyed my time here before, I scored six or seven goals last time I think and I can't wait to get started again," Drinan said.
"As soon as I heard [manager] Alan [Reynolds] and the club were interested, I wanted to come back straight away; I jumped at the chance.
"I've met some of the squad since I got in and I'm looking forward to meeting the others. Friday is a big game for the club [League of Ireland Premier Division opener at home to Shamrock Rovers] and I'm looking forward to being back at the RSC again."
Drinan, who spent last week with the Irish U21s squad, was on loan at Sutton United earlier in the season.
Waterford, who will be in 2019/20's Europa League, the first time they have played in Europe since 1986, are skippered by ex-Blues defender Damien Delaney.

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
