Graham Burke signs three-year deal to remain with Shamrock Rovers


Share this article


Graham Burke's return to Shamrock Rovers is being made permanent. 

The striker joined English Championship side Preston from Rovers in the summer of 2018. But after failing to make a breakthrough at Deepdale, he was loaned first to Gillingham then back to Rovers.

Burke signed a one-year loan deal with the Tallaght club in 2020, helping them win the SSE Airtricity Premier Division title in a curtailed season.

His contract at Preston expires on May 31, and Rovers have exercised the option to tether the Republic of Ireland international to a pre-contract agreement.

Burke will stay with Rovers for the next three seasons.

He scored eight goals in 14-games during the 2020 SSE Airtricity Premier Division season, with five of those coming in a remarkable display against Cork City in the second game of the season.

Burke started Friday's President's Cup defeat to Dundalk, and was one of the Rovers cohort to miss a penalty in the shootout.
