Bohemians have confirmed that right-back Andy Lyons has re-signed with the club ahead of the start of the 2021 season in March.

The news is announced just hours before the first team commence pre-season training.

The 20-year-old originally joined the club's under-17s in August 2016 from St Joseph's Boys and quickly progressed through to the under-19s with whom he won back-to-back league titles in 2017 and 2018 and the Enda McGuill Cup.

He captained the under-19s in the double-winning season in 2018 and also skippered the side in the UEFA Youth League.
