Galway United part ways with Stephen Kenny

Tue, Jul 10 2018

Galway United have confirmed that midfielder Stephen Kenny has left the club by mutual consent.

Kenny, 25, leaves the Éamonn Deacy Park outfit after a disappointing stint on the west coast following his move from Limerick in February, on the eve of the First Division season.

Formerly of Cork City, Waterford United, Cobh Ramblers and the recently mentioned Limerick FC, Kenny made eight starts for the Tribesmen in his brief spell at the Dyke Road venue.

Whilst at United, the former Limerick FC winger scored one goal for the club during a three-nil success against Athlone Town at the Athlone Town Stadium in May.

His last appearance for the club came during the defeat against Shelbourne on June 29th as he was hooked in at half time by temporary boss Gary O’Connor.

He appeared on the bench for the club’s most recent win over Athlone Town on Friday but he did not play any role in Galway’s 4-1 win over the First Division’s basement side at Éamonn Deacy Park.

Here is the statement in full:

Galway United can confirm that Stephen Kenny has left the club by mutual consent.

Everyone at the club wishes Stephen well and thanks him for his contribution to the club.
