Brilly signs for Athlone Town

Aaron Brilly in action for Athlone Town FC during his first spell with the club in 2017.

Kilcock’s Aaron Brilly has re-signed for League of Ireland first division side Athlone Town ahead of the forthcoming 2018 season.

Brilly, who left the midlanders halfway through last season for Home Farm FC, following some problems within the club, rejoins a club that are hoping for an upturn in fortunes under new manager Aaron Callaghan.

The club have been putting together a panel of players behind the scenes over the past number of weeks, with the full identity of the squad only to be released tonight.

Brilly has previously played in the League of Ireland with Longford Town and Cabinteely, as well as enjoying a spell with Newry City, so he brings with him experience beyond his years to Callaghan’s new side.

Athlone have recently played Ashbourne, Lucan United and Shamrock Rovers in pre season games, games Brilly is believed to have been involved in.

Brilly, who captained the South Dublin side for the majority of last season, will now prepare for his 3rd campaign and look to build on his already record number of appearances at Cabo. 

The Kilcock native has progressed steadily during his two years, helping his side finish one position better off in season two in comparison to their maiden year in the League of Ireland, where they finished bottom of the pile. 

Brilly went on to represent his country midway through 2016, becoming a permanent fixture for Ireland’s University and College’s team.
