    Hall has left his Irish club for “personal reasons”


Bermudian goalkeeper Freddy Hall has left his Irish club Limerick FC for “personal reason”, the club confirmed yesterday in an article in the Limerick Leader.

Hall had requested to leave the club for personal reasons, expressing his desire to return home to Bermuda. The Bermuda international joined Limerick in the summer of 2015 and was a key figure in their bid to avoid relegation from the Premier Division that season.

They collected 23 points in their final 12 games to move off the bottom of the table, only to be relegated via the playoff. Recently Hall has fallen behind Brendan Clarke in the Limerick first team, having helped the club gain promotion.

“The Bermuda native has undoubtedly left his mark on the club on and off the field, with his friendly approach, particularly with our younger supporters, appreciated by all,” the club said in a statement.

“We place on record our sincere thanks to Freddy for the role he played in our club.”

Fan Patsy Sweeney tweeted: “Not just a brilliant ‘keeper on the pitch but a real gentleman off it.”

Following a 1-0 away win over Sligo Rovers on Saturday night, Limerick play their first home match of the 2018 season in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division on Saturday against Bohemians at Markets Field.

Hall, 32, was a St George’s Colts player before playing abroad with Toronto FC and English clubs Northampton, Burton and Chester.
