Shelbourne have announced the signing of Republic of Ireland international striker Mary Waldron following two years out of the game playing cricket in Australia.

 

Dubliner Waldron won back-to-back league titles with Shelbourne's previous iteration, Raheny United, before leaving the game in 2014 to devote her attention to cricket.

 

The 33-year-old captained Raheny as they won their first-ever league title in 2013, having previously played with St James's Gate, UCD and St Francis.

 

It was her hat-trick against Shamrock Rovers on the final day of the season that secured the Pandas a second successive Women's National League title in 2014.

 

Waldron debuted for the Ireland senior side in 2004, a feat she repeated for the national cricket team, for whom she was recently awarded her 100th cap.

 

“Having a player of Mary's ability and experience is massive for us,” said Shelbourne manager Mark Leavy.

 

“Her history in the league speaks for itself. She's a strong, tricky player who can score goals as well as bring others into the game around her.

 

“Mary brings a real presence which will be a huge boost throughout our squad.”
