Knowing how long previous recruits have taken to adapt to our regime, would Kelly have any impact in the 15 games from July on?
He's a player I'm looking forward to seeing, be it this year or next.
Hopefully the number of games is in excess of 20.
I suspect that even allowing for the training and fitness differences, he is still more likely to have an impact than the current alternatives, whether that is at 60-75 minutes off the bench, or as a starting replacement if Pat Hoban was injured/suspended/rested.
Even if he does not feature to any significant extent, we would be better off having him training full time as part of our squad, so that he is further advanced for next season. Return to UCD on loan does not give us any benefit in terms of cover for Pat Hoban
