Right to Dream Academy duo Prince Agyemang and Ali Abass have secured moves to Irish top flight club Limerick FC.
The duo were snapped up after impressing while touring with the RtD U18’s in the UK.
Agyemang, 19 – a deep lying midfielder with his immense technical ability and superb reading of the game caught instantly caught the eye of Limerick officials during the tour.
Abass, 18 – a goalkeeper on the other hand was quickly spotted with his superior attributes in one-on-one situations and his good distribution of the ball to start attacks.
Limerick FC manager Stuart Taylor expressed his delight at his clubs latest signings having seen the two players in Manchester during the youth Premier Cup tournament.
“I went over myself and I couldn’t believe the standard. The game that they played against Preston under 19s, they absolutely battered them and these are boys that can play at under 19 level,”Taylor said in an interview.
“They’ve (RtD) played numerous Premier League under 19 sides and totally dominated the game.
“From what I have seen they will play a part next season. If we can get their clearance through for this season, and if it’s possible that they can play this season, I guarantee you they will play.
“If they don’t, then we’ll prepare them to play for next season, but they’re still eligible for under 19s.
“They’re incredible talents and it’s really going to be a good show for the supporters to see them play.”
