RAMELTON youngster Ronan Boyce has signed his first professional contract with Derry City.
The 19-year-old made his debut for the club against Cork City in 2019. He also came on as a substitute against Shelbourne at the back end of last season.
Boyce’s talents have also seen him called up to feature for the Republic of Ireland U19s squad where he made an appearance against Denmark in 2019.
The former Swilly Rovers schoolboy has agreed a two-year deal at the Brandywell having impressed the coaching staff.
Shaun Holmes has worked closely with the Donegal teenager in the past couple of seasons and said he was delighted to see the teenager rewarded for his hard work.
“It’s great that Ronan has been given his first professional contract,” Holmes said.
“He fully deserves this and it’s good for the club and the Academy as it shows what can be achieved.
“He’s a very good defender who is comfortable on the ball and he has a great attitude. Hopefully he goes on to make many first team appearances and has a long and successful career.”Tags:
