The Academy has confirmed the transfer of two of its players to Irish giants Limerick FCGhana midfielder Prince Agyemang and goalkeeper Ali Abbas have joined Irish premier division outfit Limerick FC after impressing officials of the club during their current tour of the United Kingdom.
The duo featured in the Gothia Cup in Sweden where RtD placed third place, before embarking on the UK leg of their tour which has seen the team chalk some impressive victories over the likes of Celtic and Sunderland.
Prince, 19, is known for his aggressive and technical efficiency coupled with his ability to read the game very well in a deep lying midfield position.
Ali, 18, has the distinction of playing three times at the prestigious Manchester United Premier Cup, and is a promising goalie highly rated for his good ball distribution skills, presence in post and his ability in one-on-one situations.
They will be seeking to make the transition to professional football during their time in Ireland.
Limerick FC manager Stuart Taylor expressed his delight at his club’s latest signings having seen the two players in Manchester.
“I went over myself and I couldn’t believe the standard. The game that they played against Preston Under-19s, they absolutely battered them and these are boys that can play at U19 level,” Taylor said.
