Blues move for Conor as ban is over

Limerick FC boss Tommy Barrett believes he can get the best out of new signing Conor Clifford after the ex-Chelsea prospect joined the Blues.

Former Dundalk man Clifford has been out of the game since he was handed a six-month worldwide suspension for breaching FA rules on gambling on football while he was still in England.

Clifford (26) was unable to play, or train, during the suspension but that ban expired last week and now Limerick have swooped to sign the Dubliner.

"We are delighted to have Conor on board. He is a good signing.

"We have a light squad and when a player of Conor's ability becomes available it is great to be able to have him. Hopefully he can kick-start his career again from here" said Blues boss Barrett.

Clifford spent five years at Chelsea and was named in the Ireland squad by Giovanni Trapattoni but he has struggled since leaving Stamford Bridge.
