Owolabi Becomes A Super Saint!
St Patrick's Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of Tunde Owolabi.
The 26-year-old joins us from Finn Harps, where his scored 10 times last season, including a hat-trick against us at Finn Park!
The former FC United of Manchester and Hamilton Academical striker will increase Manager Tim Clancy's attacking options at Richmond Park:
Clancy said: "We are very happy to welcome Tunde. He has unbelievable pace and will be a very good acquisition for the club. He scored 10 goals last season for Finn Harps and was a threat every time I watched him or managed against him.
He'll bring something different to the team, he is willing to play on the shoulder and run in behind but is also a very good finisher, he'll improve the team and the squad and we are looking forward to working with him."
Tunde has been explaining how it feels to be a Super Saint:
"To say that I'm absolutely delighted and happy to have signed would be an understatement. It's a massive club, St Pat's had a very good season in 2021 and we want to kick on now.
From speaking to Tim Clancy and Alan Mathews, I want to be a part of that. I can't wait to get started.
I want to continue to score goals, improve myself and help the team, I'm very happy to be a St Pat's player!"
Technical Director Alan Mathews is also delighted to have got the deal done just before Christmas:
"We are delighted to welcome Tunde to St Pat's. His power, pace and athleticism will be a tremendous addition to our attacking options, he'll add another dimension to our squad and I feel our supporters will love the way he plays."
