Ex-Valour attacker Dylan Sacramento joins Irish club

Former Valour FC attacking midfielder Dylan Sacramento has signed a contract with second-division Irish side Galway United.

The 24-year-old Winnipeg-native initially left Valour in October on a loan to Hawke’s Bay United in the New Zealand Premiership where he scored three goals across eight appearances. Sacramento made 18 appearances for Valour in their inaugural season, scoring one goal.

“I’m delighted and excited to be here,” Sacramento said in a release. “When the opportunity came up to come to Galway for this amazing project, I couldn’t say no.”

A League1 Ontario MVP and golden boot winner with Vaughan Azzurri in 2018, Sacramento previously spent time with Toronto FC and K-W United (PDL).

Galway finished seventh of ten clubs in the Irish second tier in 2019 and was last in the League of Ireland Premier Division in 2017.
