Saints Sign New Keeper Farago

St Patrick's Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of Canadian goalkeeper Tyson Farago who joins having recently played with Edmonton FC.

26 year old Tyson has previously played for WSA Winnipeg and with Portage Trail SC and Winnipeg Wesmen in his youth career, while the goalkeeper has experience of being in the Canadian international set-up at under 20 and senior level.

The Canadian is awaiting international clearance ahead of the Saints' SSE Airtricity League fixture on Friday night against Limerick in Richmond Park (kick-off 7.45pm).

Speaking to stpatsfc.com about the signing of Farago, St Pat's manager Liam Buckley expressed his delight at adding the goalkeeper to his squad.

"We are delighted to have Tyson join the club as he had other options available. He is a player we were aware of having also signed Jake Keegan from Edmonton. He is a good build for a keeper at over six foot tall, and he would have played with Chris Konopka who I had at Sporting Fingal too. His addition will create more competition for the goalie jersey and that will push everyone on."

Farago becomes the second Canadian to play for the club after former Canada international Jeff Clarke who played for the club under the management of Liam Buckley. Clarke was a fans' favourite in Inchicore after scoring a crucial goal in a 1-0 win over Bray Wanderers on the final day of the season to help the Saints win the 1998/99 League of Ireland title.
