Fan favourite Ruairi Keating enjoyed a marvellous 2018/19, as his versatility played a key role in helping United secure the National League South title.

United’s longest-serving player, Keating joined the club in February 2017 after spells in Ireland with Sligo Rovers, Galway United, and Finn Harps.

The ambitious young forward went on to make a significant contribution to our bid to escape relegation in 2016/17, with the winning goal against Southport will living long in the memory of the Yellow Army. However, last season saw the Irishman utilised on the right side of midfield by manager Gary Johnson, with Keating responding by producing a number of eye-catching performances.

With a knack of scoring important goals, added to his natural strength and pace, Ruari will be eager to enhance his reputation further following his best season yet with the club.
