Striker Wilson Waweru joins the Bit O’Red

John Russell has added his second new addition to his squad for the upcoming 2024 season.

22 year old centre forward Wilson Waweru joins from Galway United after a successful loan spell with Cobh Ramblers where he scored 13 goals from open play last season. The player joins on a two year deal.

John Russell:

“Wilson is a very good player that I am excited to bring to the club. He came through the Galway United academy and always stood out when he broke through to their first team.

“I have tracked his development and he is moving to us after scoring a lot of goals at Cobh last year.

“He is a natural finisher, he’s quick, strong, and capable of running in behind. He comes to us at a good age and is a player I’m excited to have with us next year”

Wilson Waweru:

“I am very happy to join the club. I see myself as an out and out number 9 and a focal point up top. I was happy to make the move to Cobh last year particularly with the quality of the goals scored and assists I made.

“I am looking forward to the step up in quality in the Premier Division. I feel I am becoming a better player every year, with the quality of players at this club I feel I can bring that form with me next year.

More news is expected this week as John Russell continues to build his squad for the upcoming season.
