Nugent has spent the last five years at Eamonn Deacy Park, progressing year-on-year since joining the club at under-19 level.
Alan Murphy shifted Nugent into the centre of the park as the season progressed and the Clare native pushed on and became an ever-present in the side.
Nugent scored against Shamrock Rovers in the Quarter-Final of the FAI Cup before rifling in a fantastic volley against Limerick that set United on their way to another win late in the season.
