The skilful midfielder joined United’s under-17 team two seasons ago, excelling under Alan Murphy’s watch.

Higgins captained United’s under-17’s to the semi-final of the league last season and was a key figure, contributing an impressive 12 goal haul from midfield.

Like teammate Colin Kelly, Higgins also helped Connacht Schools to win the Interprovincial title in November.

United manager Alan Murphy gave Higgins his senior debut at 16 against Finn Harps last season. He then handed him his first start against Wexford the following week at Eamonn Deacy Park.

Higgins promise was evident and Alan Murphy handed him a contract extension for the 2019 SSE Airtricity League season.
