Leixlip Utd are delighted that our former player Gabriel Adebambo has signed as a professional for Stoke City. Gabriel started in our academy when aged 6 and under the tutelage of Kenny Molloy and Robbie Fay made a big impression in our SSG team. Later under the guidance of Kenny and Roger Smith, Gabriel developed to such an extent that along with Josh Guirgi he was part of the DDSL winning Kennedy Cup squad in 20016. In 2018 Gabriel was part of our All Ireland Cup winning under 16 squad. Gabriel played on our under 17 side the next season and has gone on to be capped at under 18 level by Ireland. After a brief sojourn with Dundalk FC Gabriel has now signed for Stoke City now managed by Michael O'Neill. We wish Gabriel the best of luck in this great new adventure and we look forward to seeing him progress to the very top in the coming years.
