Exciting young keeper signs long term contract

Stockport County is excited to announce the signing of Drogheda United goalkeeper Andrew Wogan, who is set to join us as part of our Emerging Talent Programme.

The 18-year-old has signed a four year deal at Edgeley Park with the option of an additional year, and will return to Drogheda on loan until November for the remainder of the League Of Ireland season.

Andrew joins having already gained significant experience during his time in the Republic of Ireland, establishing himself as Drogheda’s number one goalkeeper at the age of just 17 and already making 40 appearances for the club in all competitions. He has also featured seven times for Republic of Ireland U19s, and in March was called up to their U21s squad for the first time.

Despite only signing his first pro-contract a year ago, the shot-stopper has excelled since breaking into the first-team, regularly featuring in the League Of Ireland Team of the Week and winning the Club’s Young Player of the Year award for 2023.

Having now signed a long-term contract at Edgeley Park, we look forward to watching Andrew continue his development at Drogheda for the remainder of their season before welcoming him back to Carrington in November.

Head of Emerging Talent, Vinil Joseph said:

“We’re delighted to bring Andrew to Stockport County. Andrew was identified as one of the most talented young and upcoming goalkeepers through his performances at Drogheda and with Ireland on the international scene. To have played 40 senior games at the age of 18 shows his goalkeeping ability, but also a level of resilience to be able to handle a senior environment which we have been extremely impressed by.

“Andrew will remain with Drogheda until the November as part of his development and we look forward to working with over the coming years.”

Head of Goalkeeping, Nick Colgan said:

“Andrew is someone we have been monitoring for some time. For a goalkeeper so young to have played the number of senior games he has is not only a testament to his ability, but also to his temperament.

“I am really excited by the goalkeeping department we have put together during the off-season, that will hopefully keep the club in safe hands for years to come. I look forward to welcoming Andrew into the group in November when the League of Ireland finishes and aiding in his development over the coming seasons.”
