King Billy Returns!
St Patrick's Athletic are delighted to announce that Billy King has signed a new contract with the club.
The attacker has made 55 appearances and scored 11 goals in his two seasons with the club so far as he heads into his third year as a Super Saint.
The 27-year-old featured in every game in 2021 and was one of the scorers in our penalty shootout win against Bohemians in the FAI Cup Final last month.
'King Billy' is delighted to be returning to Richmond for another season:
"I'm absolutely buzzing to have signed back for next year & I'm looking forward to getting back over to start pre-season with the lads.
I'm also excited to work Tim, Jon, Alan & the coaching staff.
We had a successful season in 2021, we ended on a high with a brilliant win in the cup final so will be looking to carry that momentum into the start of the new campaign.
I can't wait to get going!"
Technical Director Alan Mathews said:
"We are delighted that Billy is back on board again, he made a great contribution in 2021 in a number of different positions. Billy scored some important goals too, we look forward to seeing him playing a key role again in the coming season."
While Manager Tim Clancy added:
"Billy is a top player, he has got plenty of experience, he is versatile and can play on either wing or up through the middle as a striker. He scored lots of crucial goals for St Pat's last season.
The younger attacking players can learn from his professionalism too and see how he does things on and off the pitch, it's great his deal done!"
