Shamrock Rovers have announced four signings ahead of next season's Airtricity League.

David McAllister signs from English side Stevenage and said at his unveiling: “I am delighted to sign here today, I've chatted both to Stephen McPhail & Stephen Bradley and I'm really excited about the future here at Rovers."

"I'm delighted to sign for the club and I can't wait to get out on the pitch at Tallaght Stadium, it’s the best stadium in the league, to play in front of the Hoops fans and win trophies!” he added.

The club's head coach Stephen Bradley said: “I am delighted to get it over the line now, it's been a long process getting this deal over the line and we're delighted with the type of midfielder we're signing.

"Dave adds to what is now a very experienced midfield in our squad. Dave has a lot of experience from the league of Ireland and away in England so we're absolutely delighted to sign him here today," he added. 

Rovers also announced they had offered professional contracts to promising youth players Aaron Bolger, Dean Dillon and Luke Kiely.
