Wexford native Ryan Delaney was pivotal to Cork City’s recent League and Cup double…
Playing underage with New Ross FC before joining Wexford Youths FC, Delaney impressed and the versatile defender signed a contract with English championship side Burton Albion aged 19.
During his first year at the club, he was sent on loan to Cork City. Delaney was called back to pre-season after Cork City finished their season, but had yet to make an appearance for Burton.
Now, Delaney has left Burton Albion to join League One side Rochdale AFC on a permanent two-and-a-half-year deal. Speaking to Rochdale’s Official Media he stated:
“I wanted to come to a club that would help me progress even further and I feel that, at this point in my career, Rochdale is going to be a good club to help me to do that.
“The last year has been very good for me and I enjoyed getting out playing football and getting regular games. I feel as though I’ve improved a lot over the last year, so hopefully I can keep on progressing.
Rochdale currently sit on the 23rd spot of League One.
