Drinan Returns From Waterford Loan
Wednesday, 12th Jun 2019 19:07
Striker Aaron Drinan’s loan spell with his former club Waterford has ended, the League of Ireland club has announced.
The 21-year-old was due to remain with Waterford until the end of the month but he will now return to the Blues having scored seven times while back with the club from whom he joined Town in January 2018.
Speaking in April, Drinan, who won his fourth Republic of Ireland U21 cap as a late sub as his side was beaten 2-0 by Brazil in the semi-final of the Maurice Revello Toulon Tournament this afternoon, said he hoped his goalscoring form with Waterford would put him in manager Paul Lambert’s plans with U23s coaches Gerard Nash and Chris Hogg reviewing footage of his performances.
"It gives something for the gaffer to think about if I'm scoring over here because obviously they've got relegated. It will be good if I keep the run going,” he said.
Drinan, who will hope to make his first Irish U21s start in Saturday’s Maurice Revello Toulon Tournament third-place play-off against Mexico before returning to Playford Road ahead of the start of pre-season training on June 24th, is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues but has been on the bench on five occasions.
A former Cork City youth player, Drinan is contracted to Town until the summer of 2021.
