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.

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
