Exciting young attacker Wilson Waweru has re-signed with Galway United for the upcoming 2022 season.
Wilson Waweru refined his footballing ability playing for local Galway City side Mervue United, and signed with Galway United in 2017, emerging in the youth setup as a diverse forward, who is comfortable as a lone striker, or as a part of a duo. This was further highlighted with a nine goal contribution in his first season in the underage setup, forming a formidable partnership with Harry Rogers.
In 2018, Wilson was promoted to the first team by Alan Murphy, and in the process, made five appearances, and thus began to repay the faith shown in him. The following year, Waweru added to his appearance and goals total, and at the conclusion of the 2020 season, became a regular starter for the Maroon Army.
The 2021 season became Wilson’s breakout season, becoming a man that John Caulfield would heavily rely on, scoring 8 goals, whilst at the same time, cementing himself as a fan favourite throughout the club, something which helps him perform from season to season
