Athlone Town have announced that manager Eddie Wallace has added two more players to his squad for the 2015 SSE Airtricity League First Division season.
Michael Brown joins the Midlanders from Bray Wanderers, while Aidan Friel, formerly of Strabane Athletic, will also feature in the Athlone shirt.
Before Christmas Athlone confirmed that goalkeeper Shane Cusack and Garbhan Coughlan had agreed deals with the club. Cusack and Coughlan both saw action in the top flight for Limerick FC last season.
Coughlan has previously featured in two loan stints for Athlone making a significant impact in the promotion-winning campaign in 2013. In 22 appearances for Athlone Coughlan netted five goals as Athlone claimed the First Division title.
Cusack, viewed as one of the most promising young goalkeepers in the domestic game, had a spell cross-channel with Colchester United early in his career.
Confirmed Athlone Town signings for 2015:
Shane Cusack, Michael Brown, Aidan Friel, Paddy Dunican, Aidan Collins, Brian Shortall, Thomas Mulroney, Stephen Dunne, Marco Chindea, Derek Doyle, Sam O’Connor, Philly Gorman, and Garbhan Coughlan.
