"It’s brilliant to get finally get it over the line and I am very excited for this new chapter," Nash told

"It is a new challenge and I can’t wait to get going. The lads are great, the staff are great and we are looked after very well here.

"The training is good, the tempo, the intensity… and I am really looking forward to getting my head down and getting some games."

"I feel fit and ready to go, and hopefully, when I get the opportunity, I will take it with both hands. I want to get myself back out there, my confidence, scoring goals and working hard.

"It has been ongoing for a few weeks, so we are delighted that everything is now resolved and Liam can officially sign," Caulfield said.

"Liam has been in with us for a few weeks and he done has very well. He is a very good finisher and we are happy to have him in."

"Liam sees this as a real opportunity; he knows he needs to come here and get goals. He’s been in training and has been at the last few games, including the President’s Cup, so he knows the intensity and the standard of this league.
