Bohemians have sent out a major signal of intent ahead of next season with goalkeeper Shane Supple and defender Rob Cornwall signing new deals with the Phibsborough club.
Supple is in his second season at the club and has penned a new contract taking him up to the end of 2019. The former Ipswich Town man returned to Irish football in 2015 with Leinster Senior League outfit Crumlin United before he made the switch to Bohemians in 2016, helping the northside club to an eighth-place finish.
Since taking over as Bohs’ number one from Dean Delany, Supple has gone on to become one of the league’s most talented goalkeepers. He is also a gifted Gaelic footballer having played with St. Brigid’s and was a member of the Dublin senior panel in the past.
Cornwall only joined from rivals Shamrock Rovers prior to the 2017 campaign and is now signed up for another full season. He previously plied his trade at St Pat’s and Shelbourne as well as a loan spell at Derry City in 2015. Cornwall quickly became a key figure at the heart of the Bohs defence this season, partnering young prospect Warren O’Hara.
Both signings will be well-received by Gypsies fans as Keith Long’s men prepare to build on what has been an impressive 2017 campaign overall.
The Dalymount club host relegated Finn Harps on Friday in their final game of 2017.
