Maurice Nugent joined United from Mervue United’s under-19 side.
The 18-year-old has made huge progress in his two years at Eamonn Deacy Park and at the start of the 2016 season, Johnny Glynn named him team captain.
Equally adept on his left or right foot, Nugent has slot in seamlessly across United’s back four and the Clare native is also a threat from set pieces.
Nugent was promoted to Galway United’s first team at the start of the 2017 season after an impressive year with the club’s under-19 side, where he made 24 appearances, scoring 3 goals.
