Shelbourne bolster squad with three new signings

The Tolka Park club has added three new members to its squad ahead of the 2013 campaign as manager Alan Mathews continues to prepare
Shelbourne have confirmed the signing of three new players ahead of the forthcoming 2013 season.

Midfielder Paul Crowley, 32, joins the club from league runners-up Drogheda United, while 27-year-old striker Dean Kelly arrives at Tolka Park from Dublin rivals St Patrick's Athletic. Also joining Shels is 20-year-old Bray Wanderers midfielder Adam Hanlon.

Several players have departed Tolka Park during the off-season, with winger Paddy Kavanagh joining Derry City and Conan Byrne opting to sign for St Patrick's Athletic. Midfielder David Cassidy also left the club to sign for Drogheda United.

However, Shelbourne boss Alan Mathews has already secured a number of players ahead of the new campaign, including the the club's leading goalscorer last season, Philly Hughes, as well as new players Sean Brennan, Jack Memery and Pat Flynn.
