Ryan back in Galway after eight years

WINGER Bobby Ryan has returned to Galway United after an eight-year spell away from the club.

Limerick-native Ryan made his name with Galway in 2000-2001 and earned a move to Bohemians.

He won league titles with Bohs and Shelbourne, and also lined out for Dunfermline and St Pats, but now Galway boss Sean Connor has tempted the player back to Terryland Park.

Galway may also make a move for former Shelbourne striker Anto Flood after he guested in Friday's friendly against Hull City.

Meanwhile, Tommy Dunne enjoyed a 7-0 friendly win in his first game as Cork City manager. Dunne, who arrived in Cork on Friday, took charge for yesterday's win over non-league side Crosshaven as City prepare for the start of the new season on Friday.

Mark McNulty, Admir Softic, Greg O'Halloran, Cillian Lordan and George O'Callaghan, who all had spells at Cork before, played for City along with possible new signings Graeme Cummins, Willie Heffernan, Ian Turner and Sammuele Emilliano.
