Defender Dan Casey Set to Join Republic FC

January 14, 2021 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Sacramento Republic FC News Release

Sacramento, Calif. - Sacramento Republic FC announced today that Defender Dan Casey will join the Indomitable Club, pending league and federation approval. He will be added to Republic FC's roster pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and ITC. Per club policy, the terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Dan's addition brings physicality, aggressiveness, and a strong pedigree to our defensive core," said Republic FC General Manager Todd Dunivant. "His intensity and grit fit in very well to our team mentality, and he is the type of defender that opposing attackers do not like facing."

The 23-year-old defender has experience across the backline, with a majority of his time at center back and right back. He joins Republic after spending the 2020 season with Bohemians FC in the first tier of Irish football, helping lead them to a second-place finish, as well as an FAI Cup quarterfinals appearance. Casey logged 15 starts in 18 league matches, as well as one Europa League Qualifying and an FAI Cup start.

The Dublin native played for Bohemian FC in 2017 and 2018 before joining Cork City via loan in 2019 and bolstered the defense en route to a Munster Senior Cup Championship and an FAI President's Cup Final appearance. In four League of Ireland Premier Division seasons, he started 86% of the matches when in the gameday roster.

Casey began his career at Sunderland, spending four years in their player development system, competing with the U18 and U23 sides. Casey also has featured for Ireland's youth national teams in the UEFA U17 and U19 Championship.
