23 Apr Darragh Leahy Signs Two-Year Extension at Coventry City
They say hard work pays off, and that often is nearly always the case. With Darragh Leahy it most certainly rings true; the DB Sports associated player has been awarded with his hard work at Coventry City with a two year extension.
The former St. Kevin’s Boys player signed for Coventry City in November 2014, and has gone from strength to strength since then. Having been captain for the under-18’s in an FA Youth Cup clash against Arsenal at the Ricoh Arena in February he was bound to continue catching the eye. The match ended 3-3, with Coventry City scoring a late equaliser, forcing the Gunners to penalties, in which they were unlucky to lose.
He is no stranger to such success however, having previously been capped for the Republic of Ireland at youth level, earning his first competitive cap against Gibraltar in the UEFA U17 Qualifying Round in September 2014.
His progression from Malahide United to St. Kevin’s Boys and on to Coventry City has been one built by hard-work, and decorated by natural talent. Those who have followed his progression won’t forget how his St. Kevin’s Boys team won the impressive treble, picking up their third title in a row which attracted attention with some of his team-mates making their way to England already.
Upon signing for Coventry City last year DB Sports co-founder David Berber explained the heart-warming of how Leahy was spotted by the Coventry scouts:
“The great thing about this deal is Darragh was spotted while on a team tour with DB Sports Tours three months ago when we organised games for his St. Kevin’s Boys vs. Chesterfield and Coventry. He impressed in the game and was held back for a one week’s trial training with the first team and the rest is history.” David Berber commented on his recent extension. “Darragh is a fantastic athlete and individual, he never complains,works hard on and off the pitch and his attitude is second to none, I couldn’t ask for anything better in a client, Darragh and his family deserve all the luck in the world for his determination and hard work”
