Rover of the Day: Paul Keegan

6 July 2020

Sponsored by

Paul Keegan born July 5, 1984.

Dubliner Paul failed to break into the first team at Leeds United, then in the Premier League and returned to Ireland to play for Drogheda United and Bohemians.

After a successful trial he signed for Rovers in January 2011 and went on to make 10 appearances before his season was curtailed by injury. Unfortunately, this was to be a recurring theme and meant that the highly effective defensive midfielder was seldom able to get through a full campaign. He did help Rovers to the League One title in 2012-13, coming off the bench in the final game at Brentford to make a useful contribution.

He remained at Rovers until June 2017, during which time he became their second-longest serving player after James Coppinger. He returned to Ireland to join Waterford and is currently with Bray Wanderers. His Rovers record was 145 senior appearances with two goals.
