LIMERICK FC’s exciting midfielder Shane Tracy can’t wait for the new season to start having missed the final three months of last term with an unfortunate knee injury.

Twenty five-year-old Tracy, who has resigned for Limerick, says he is ‘looking forward to making up for lost time’ when the new Airtricity League Premier Division season begins in March.

Tracy – who has been back at Limerick since April 2009 – says he is relishing a return to action, having trained with the squad since the start of pre-season. Blues manager Stuart Taylor said he was ‘really delighted’ Duggan had resigned.

“I’m very happy to sign back. It was frustrating towards the end of last year getting injured so I’m looking forward to the new season after getting signed up.

“I’ve always been in conversation with Stuart. It’s just ironing up bits and pieces and what it comes down to. I’m delighted to be back at the club again for another season.

“I came back at the start of pre-season and the training has been tough, but that’s what I expected. It’s all structured and they’re not killing us or anything.

“It’s a great bunch of lads here so the new lads were always going to be welcomed,” Tracy said.

“Duggy (Shane Duggan) is a Limerick lad as it is so it won’t take him long to settle in. It’s the same with Mick (Leahy). They’re two good lads and I’ve no doubt they’ll settle in well to the way the Gaffer wants to go about things.”
