PLAYER BIO

The Ballinasloe native follows in the footsteps of Eoin McCormack, having played for Ballinasloe Town before making the step up to League of Ireland football.

The striker has featured sporadically over the last two seasons in the First Division, after making his senior debut in 2016, while still regularly playing with Athlone Town under-17s. Layng was also an Irish Schools international in 2017.

Layng made an immediate impact with United's under-19 squad, scoring goals aplenty. His form at underage saw him thrust into the first team, where he made 9 appearances before his season was cut short by a cruciate ligament injury.

Galway United manager Alan Murphy showed faith in the young striker however, handing him a new contract for 2019 and his return to action is pencilled in for April.
